Admission Requirements

College applicants must visit and tour the college before enrolling. We require parents of dependent students to co-sign enrollment documents. We recommend that spouses also visit the college. Family support is valuable for a students’ success when starting a new career. Applicants should call or write the admissions coordinator to arrange a visit.
