Undergraduate Admission and Matriculation

The application for admission is 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 ACORN, 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. An accepted applicant is expected to confirm the decision to enroll in the college by paying the non-refundable $150 deposit. The deposit signifies a commitment to pursuing degree completion and positions the student to receive important student services such as orientation tutorials and academic advisement. The deposit will be applied to tuition/fees and will be able to be deferred for one term.
