First-Year Students

Application for first-year admission requires submission of the following: completed application form and an official high school transcript. To be considered an official transcript, it must contain such things as an imprinted school seal, wet signatures, and/or have an official statement from the school labeling it an official document. From these documents, the College must be able to determine the validity of a student's high school completion. The College reserves that right to contact a high school directly to verify a student’s graduation if for example (but not limited to) they feel that documentation is not valid or was not obtained from an entity that provides secondary school education. Admission may be revoked should document(s) found to be invalid.

An official score report from either the College Entrance Examination Board Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Testing Program (ACT) is optional. Test scores may be required for certain scholarship opportunities or recommended for students who are asked to provide further evidence of academic potential. In addition to those items, a letter of recommendation from a school counselor and a 250 word essay are recommended. An on-campus interview is strongly recommended but not required.

The application for admission and the acceptance are valid only for the academic year for which the application has been made.
