Early Application is Strongly Encouraged

New students enrolling for the first time must submit a complete application file at least three weeks before registration begins or they must pay a $20 late application fee. The University reserves the right to rescind an offer of admission should updated or additional documentation become available.

Applicants for admission are required to disclose details of previous felony convictions (including a plea of guilty, a plea of no contest, withholding of adjudication or their equivalents). The Office of Admissions may require additional information from the applicant prior to reaching an admission decision. The University reserves the right to deny admission to an applicant or admit with restrictions based upon a review of these details. Misrepresentation of the facts or failure to provide requested information could be cause for refusal of admission, cancellation of admission or suspension from the University.
