The application deadline for full-time students is 30 days before the semester begins. To ensure a space, however, early application is strongly encouraged. Applicants will be informed of their status within four weeks after the application file is completed.
Accepted students should confirm their acceptance by submitting an advance deposit of $100. The deposit is refundable if a written request is received by the college 60 days prior to the start of the new semester. Although campus visits are not required for admission, it is important that applicants visit the campus to experience it firsthand. Applicants should plan to spend a number of hours attending classes, meeting faculty and students and taking a campus and area tour.
The Admissions Office can assist with arrangements for overnight stays. Transfer applicants must present a satisfactory academic record (normally at least a 2.0 on a 4.0 scale) from each institution attended. This requirement may be waived under certain conditions, such as for a returning veteran, mature student or special circumstances.
