General Information

Applicants for admission to undergraduate programs at the College are encouraged to apply online at Applicants will be directed to the online application that will provide the procedures for application submission.  Freshmen and transfer students must apply by March 15 for the fall semester and September 15 for the spring semester.

Students must list all institutions attended, as requested on the appropriate application, and arrange to have official transcripts sent to the University Application Processing Center (UAPC). Freshman and transfer applications are processed at the UAPC, not at the College. Failure to list all prior institutions attended on your application will subject you to disciplinary action and review of the admission decision.

Transfer credits will be denied for courses completed at institutions not listed on the application for admission. The College reserves the right to deny admission to any student if, in its judgment, the presence of that student on campus poses an undue risk to the safety or security of the College or the College community. That judgment will be based on an individualized determination, taking into account any information the College has about a student’s criminal record and the particular circumstances of the College, including the presence of a child care center, a public school, or public school students on the campus.
