Prospective students should contact the school to arrange an appointment for a personal interview with an admissions representative.

During the interview, the applicant will answer questions pertaining to their vocational interests and career aspirations in order to ensure that the applicant has the ability to successfully pursue their studies.

Based on the results of this interview, the applicant moves on to complete a financial aid interview with the financial aid officer.

Once the applicant successfully completes the enrollment process, makes satisfactory payment arrangements, completes orientation, is issued books/supplies and is scheduled for classes, he/she is considered a regular student.
