Online Application Help

Getting Help Applying
  • All items indicated with an asterisk are required fields.
  • Use the "back" button to navigate between screens and the "tab" key to navigate between fields.
  • You will be required to use your social security number to apply. It is considered the best and most effective way to uniquely identify you for the purpose of accurately processing and maintaining your educational records. This number is restricted to internal college use in matching admissions applications with ACT and other test scores, financial aid, and maintenance of your academic record.
  • You will only be allowed to submit ONE application per term. Additional attempts at submitting applications will be denied.
  • Do NOT use "None" or "N/A" (not applicable) in completing field information. For example: If you do not have a middle name, just leave that field blank.
  • If you have problems submitting the online application, email us at for technical help.
