  • College Composition I (3 credits)

(Courses taken beyond 10 years of this application will be considered, but may not be accepted.)


  1. Acceptance of students is two part process based upon results of:

Part 1:  Completed application score and

Part 2:  Personal interview score.

Each candidate’s application and transcripts will be reviewed with a score being obtained from academic grades in math, science and other relative courses. (Advanced/college prep courses will carry more weight than standard course work.) Based on these scores the most qualified individuals will be granted a personal interview.
The interview scores will be added to the application score in order to make our final decisions.
