    Admission Policies and Procedures
    The admission requirements that must be met are determined by an individual's academic preparation. The file of an applicant whose academic background does not fall into one of the categories below will be carefully reviewed by the Admissions Office, and the applicant will be notified of the appropriate documents required.

    Admission to the university does not assure admission into any of the professional colleges (Business Administration, Education, Engineering, or Nursing and Health Sciences) or into any program with secondary admission requirements.

    All admission documents must be submitted directly to the Admissions Office. Official transcripts should be sent directly from the schools involved, and official test scores should be sent directly from the appropriate testing agency. All transcripts in languages other than English or Spanish must be accompanied by a certified English translation.

    All documents submitted to the university for admission purposes become part of the official files of the university and cannot be released or returned to the student or another institution.

    HIGH SCHOOL PREPARATION: The university strongly encourages students to take high school courses that will give them the academic preparation necessary to pursue a baccalaureate degree. The high school curriculum listed below constitutes the current minimum recommended preparation for university level work.
