Some departments require additional information beyond that described above.
Commercial Music Technology: Students must test and audition for admission into the Commercial Music Technology Program.
Education and Nursing: These majors have higher GPA requirements for program admission. Students who do not meet these requirements may still be considered for admission to another major and this will be communicated to you by an admissions counselor.
Education: Transfer students must meet the GPA for Education Admissions Matrix.
Nursing: All nursing applicants must begin the program during the fall semester. Due to limited capacity and the high interest in the nursing major, this program is highly selective. We encourage students to apply early in order to maximize consideration for admission.
You will need to ask your guidance counselor to send an application fee waiver to the admissions office. The application fee waiver must include your first and last name. We will also send you a follow up communication that the application fee or waiver is due to support your application.
Your guidance counselor may use one of the options listed below.
