Most Popular Fields of Study


Admissions are non-competitive. Prospective students are expected to complete an application for enrollment, an interview questionnaire, and financial aid forms if applicable. All incoming students interview with an admissions representative and receive a tour of the facility. Once this process is complete, students will be informed of their status within seven days. The Director of Education will evaluate any previous training and education to determine whether credit is transferable. Students applying for advanced standing must submit an official transcript with catalog class descriptions for review prior to beginning their program of study. No more than 50% of total credits may be transferred.

Financial Aid

All students are encouraged to apply for financial aid. There is no application deadline but applications are considered in the order received, so it is important to finish this paperwork as early as possible. A student’s expected family contribution is used in determining need. Participating federal financial aid programs include:

  • Federal Pell Grants
  • Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
  • Federal Work Study
  • Stafford Loans (both subsidized and unsubsidized)
  • Direct PLUS Loans

In order to be eligible for these financial aid programs, students must meet the following standards of eligibility:

  • Maintain satisfactory academic progress
  • Be a US citizen or an eligible non-citizen
  • Possess a valid Social Security Number
  • Possess a high school diploma, GED, or satisfactory ATB test result
  • Not be in default of previous loans or have borrowed in access of loan limits
