Here is some information that you need to review before you click the “APPLY NOW” button:

  • The application will require you to create an account that you can save and return to at a later time if you get interrupted.
  • You will want to have the information from all prior institutions you have attended. All that is required at this time is the institutions name. NOTE: Under college just enter your institution’s name, then click search. See if your institution appears in the box that displays below the search button. If it is there, choose it and click select. If it is not there, please enter the institutions name into the box titled “Unlisted School Name and Address” and click select.
  • We will require official transcripts from all institutions you have attended. They can be sent via email if your prior institution submits electronic transcripts officially to or mailed to:
