New Students are required to meet with a counselor for an Admissions Interview prior to acceptance to the college. The purpose of the interview is to review placement test scores and determine a course of study appropriate to students’ interests and aptitude levels.

Students completing the placement test will complete their admissions interview after testing. Students that do not have to take the placement test will need to meet with a counselor prior to acceptance at the college. A letter of acceptance will be mailed to you following your Admissions Interview.
