All applications for admission are processed by the Office of Enrollment Services.  After all required documents have been submitted and processed, you will be notified of your admission status.

Admission to the college does not guarantee admission to a specific program. It is necessary to check the prerequisites for a program in order to determine ones eligibility for entry into that particular degree program. Some programs require a separate application and completion of prerequisites before entry.

The process is different depending on what type of student you are. Select the group that describes yourself below to learn more about admissions requirements, what you need to fill out the application and more.
