Here's a step-by-step guide to start you on the way to your higher education goals.  

Step One

Visit our web pages to get a sense of our programs, our diverse and flexible class structures, and our commitment to the adult student. Request an information packet for more information.

Step Two

Join us for one of our informal Information Sessions at the College, and meet with an academic advisor.  You can register online.  

Step Three

Complete an Online Application (or paper) for admissions, and have all of your official transcripts sent.

Step Four

Make an appointment with an academic advisor, who can look at your previous coursework (if any), discuss your goals, and help you to put together an academic plan.

Step Five

Arrange to finance your education by either visiting our Financial Aid pages or by obtaining tuition reimbursement information from your employer. Payment policies/information is available from our Finance Office.

Step Six

Attend one of the orientation sessions that we hold before the start of each session. This will allow you to become familiar with the campus, obtain a Student ID card, apply for a parking permit, learn how to navigate our online system for your student information and meet your fellow students!

Prospective students should start the application process at least six weeks in advance of the desired start date.
