Admissions

Students may apply for admission online, in person, or over the phone with an enrollment specialist. The enrollment specialist is equipped to handle any and all questions the student may have regarding the college as it relates to getting started. The enrollment specialist will provide the prospective student with a list of all documents needed, which in most cases is an official copy of high school transcripts, a GED, or equivalent. The student will need to complete and submit the application for admittance and turn it in along with other material for evaluation.

The college tries its best to recognize all previously earned credits, provided that they fall into the requirements for the student’s specific degree or program of studies. Students interested in applying may do so for the Fall or Spring semester; the application for admission period usually starts several months before the start of the semester. It is encouraged that all students apply early in order to secure their place for the semester they are hoping to enter. Undeclared major students are accepted as well and will complete the General Education Requirements until a major is declared.

Financial Aid

As with any institution of higher learning, the college understands that not all students and all families can afford the hefty tuition fees of a degree-granting institution. Federal financial aid is available here; the FAFSA should be filed shortly after applying for admission for eligible students. Eligible students include US citizens as well as non-citizen students who meet certain criteria according to the US government. International students and students who may not cover all tuition and expenses through federal aid are encouraged to apply for the various scholarships and awards offered through the school.
