Admission and Matriculation

An application for admission may be completed online. Upon receipt of the application and application fee, the College will issue an email acknowledging the application and provide the prospective student with a user name and password. Applicants may check on the status of their application at any time by accessing the student portal. An applicant's file is kept active for six months from the date of that acknowledgement. Official transcripts and test scores of all previous academic work must be requested by the applicant and sent directly to the College.

Once all official transcripts have been received by the College and it has been determined that the applicant has met minimum admissions requirements, notification of acceptance is sent via email.

A summary of the applicant's transferable credit and access to the advising worksheet is provided to the student by the Admissions Counseling Staff. The accepted applicant will receive initial academic advisement from their admissions counselor. Upon registration for their first three-credit course, and establishment of a method of payment, the student will be considered matriculated. Applicants who do not register and pay for their initial course within six months of applying will be deactivated.
