Application Process

The admission process will not begin until all application materials are received. Materials are not reviewed before this time. Applications are accepted on a continuous basis and seats are offered first come, first serve to students who meet the admission requirements. All application materials are due by 5 p.m. Monday four weeks prior to the start of the program or semester students wish to begin. Applications that are not completed by this deadline will be rolled over to the next program start date or semester.

Most of our programs begin in the summer semester. Students are not only admitted to the College but are also admitted directly into the program they plan to pursue.

High school seniors and individuals in the community who wish to take only a few selected courses without being admitted to a full program may apply as a community student. High school students may apply after completion of the junior year. Acceptance is contingent upon successful high school graduation with appropriate grade point average.
