Admissions Offers Are Tentative

All offers of admission are tentative if you have high school or collegiate coursework in progress. Final admission is dependent on receipt and review of your final transcripts. Admission offers are subject to cancellation if your final coursework does not meet admission requirements.

Our Orientation office will contact you concerning your attendance at a one-day orientation program. At Orientation you will meet with an academic advisor who will review transferred course work and help you plan your class schedule. You will also meet with other transfer students as well as faculty and staff who can assist you as you make this important transition.
