We understand your eagerness to start your educational journey. To begin courses as soon as possible, find
your desired start date and complete all admission steps before the next 'Register by' deadline listed on our academic calendar.

The first step in your admission process is to fill out our online application. Once you've submitted your application, we'll provide you with a personalized list of tasks to complete. For more detailed information about what you’ll need to apply, read about our admissions requirements.

We understand that obtaining and submitting transcripts can sometimes be a hassle. That's why we're here to assist you. In most cases, we can request your official transcripts from prior institutions on your behalf, making the process more convenient and efficient for you. However, there are some instances in which institutions may require that you make the request directly. For questions or more information about obtaining transcripts, please reach out to an enrollment representative. [1]
