Residency Requirements

Degree-Seeking Students

If you plan to attend full or part-time and work towards a degree, diploma, or certificate you must also be admitted to a curriculum. In addition to the completed admission form, degree-seeking (curriculum) students must demonstrate proficiency in reading, writing and mathematics.

Admission to a College or a curriculum does not necessarily guarantee admission to a particular program. Additional qualifications may be required for admission to a specific program, such as Nursing or Veterinary Technology.

Non-Degree-Seeking Students

If you are planning to take classes without completing a certificate, diploma, or degree program, you are classified as a non-curriculum student. You will need to complete the application for admission and fulfill any prerequisite requirements as outlined in the College Catalog.

Transfer Students

Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended must be submitted if you are requesting transfer credit. Official transcripts must be sent directly to the college from the institution in a sealed envelope.
