Application Process

Applying to any of our programs or courses is an efficient process completed entirely online. There are separate application requirements depending on if you're applying to a degree or academic certificate program, as a non-degree seeking student, or are looking to re-enter a program you started for which you haven't completed a course in more than one year. (Our Professional Certificates have separate application and registration processes that vary by course and program as well.)

No matter which path you're on, you'll find an extensive network of personal and technical support throughout the application process. We admit year-round, allowing you to begin your program of study not long after you're accepted.
