When the Admissions Committee has received all of the required documentation, the committee will evaluate the application and respond with a decision within approximately one month.

*The Admissions Committee reserves the right to request additional documents, including but not limited to: high school transcripts for GED candidates, revised SAT or ACT scores, additional test scores, letters of recommendation, senior year grades, and/or a personal interview. The Admissions Committee also reserves the right to recalculate GPA based on core curriculum.

The University Registrar will evaluate all college transcripts and the credits to be transferred. Please see the academic catalog for transfer credit policy.

Official transcripts from all previously attended colleges, universities, etc. are required. Certificates are not acceptable. These transcripts can be unofficial, initially. Final transcript from high school or copy of GED is also required. Acceptance is contingent upon receipt of official, final transcripts.

Transfer Scholarships are available for prospective transfer students who meet certain requirements.
