We try to make the application process as simple—and friendly—as possible. If you have questions along the way, please contact the Office of Adult and Graduate Admission.
All students can strengthen their application for admission by submitting a Goals Statement and current resumé with their application packet. Students whose academic records show promise, but are not as strong as required for admission consideration, will be asked to submit a Goals Statement and resumé for review by the Admission Committee before an admission decision is made.
*Students applying to the nursing program must submit a high school transcript or GED scores. Please request an official high school transcript be forwarded to the Office of Adult and Graduate Admission.
