The Admissions Office is open with limited on-campus staffing. We offer both in-person and virtual visits. Due to limited on-campus staffing, prospective students who would like to meet with an Admissions Advisor should make an appointment to guarantee someone is available to meet with them. Prospective students who wish to drop off transcripts and complete admissions applications are welcome to walk-in during normal business hours.
