  • Proof of high school education, such as a clear picture of your high school diploma or transcript or GED

Next, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) if applying for financial aid assistance. There are instructions for applying for financial aid on our Financial Aid page. Please note that it takes 4-5 business days for the FAFSA® to reach us after you have submitted it.

We ask that you show up to your tour 10 minutes early to fill out a personal history form. Then, we’ll take you on a tour of the campus, show you the various rooms and facilities, introduce you to some instructors and students, and give you an opportunity to ask questions.

If you decide that we are a good fit, and you wish to apply for enrollment, you will need to verify your financial plan with our Financial Aid Director.

Step 4: Fill Out the Appropriate Paperwork
You can expect to fill out additional paperwork prior to enrolling. We have a tour package that includes steps before a student is accepted for enrollment. Please note that we do have a $25 application fee that you will need to pay before your application is complete.

Step 5: Await Acceptance
Now, all you have to do is wait for confirmation that you have been accepted and that you have a seat in your preferred program at your preferred start date! We will send you an official welcome email with this information from the Office of Admissions confirming your class seat/start date and orientation information.
