The college requires that applicants wishing to enroll in a degree or diploma course be either a high school graduate or possess a GED. All applicants must take the Wonderlic Scholastic Level Entrance Exam and achieve a minimum score of 16 in order to enroll.
Upon successful completion of the Wonderlic SLE, applicants will take math and English placement tests. Applicants who do not achieve a score of 69 percent or higher on the math placement test or 70 percent on the English placement test will be required to complete developmental courses in math and/or English. For applicants who are required to take these courses, it will be necessary to increase the total credit hours of their programs by 4 hours (one developmental course) or 8 hours (two developmental courses.)
Outstanding high school students may be admitted to the college provided they obtain written permission from their parents and their principal or guidance counselor.
Since emphasis is placed on the ability to learn and to become employable, it is the policy of the college to accept for admission only those applicants who have a definite career objective.
A personal interview is conducted with all interested applicants to fully explain the programs offered and to better qualify each applicant. The college is open to all applicants without discrimination on the basis of race, religion, national origin, age, gender, or disability.
Credits from an accredited post-secondary institution will be accepted on the basis of an official transcript provided by the transfer student when “C” or better grades were earned at the previous institution. The official transcript must be submitted to the Director of Education no later than the end of the student’s first quarter of enrollment. Transfer credits must be similar in nature and length to courses offered by the college. Certain transfer courses, e.g. Medical Terminology, may require a proficiency test as well as a transcript in order to satisfy the college’s requirements. The charge for the test is $25. If 80% or better is achieved, the fee will be waived. A maximum of 50% of program credits may transfer.
Credit acceptance is at the discretion of the Director.
