The School of Continuing Studies has an “open” admission policy for undergraduate students, requiring graduation from high school or high school equivalency.
If you are seeking admission to a graduate program, please refer to the requirements for the Master of Liberal Arts or the Master of Professional Studies in
Homeland Security or Computing Technologies .
For undergraduate students your first step is to submit the online application along with a non-refundable $25 processing fee. Depending on your admission status, please follow these guidelines for enrollment:
If you graduated from high school within the last two years and you have never attended a regionally accredited institution, you must submit your high school transcript (including graduation date) and ACT scores to your adviser before being allowed to register for classes. If you received an English score of 20 or above, you may register for ENGL 1010 (Writing). If you received less than a score of 20 on the English portion of the ACT or if you did not take the ACT, you must register for CSEN 1000 (Composition & Reading). If you are placed into CSEN 1000 (Composition & Reading), you may enroll in no more than one additional class during your first semester.
If you graduated from high school more than two years ago, you must meet with an academic adviser before being allowed to register. You must also submit your high school diploma or equivalent within 45 days of the start of your first semester of enrollment. If we do not receive your diploma within 45 days, you may not register for subsequent semesters.
If you previously attended a regionally accredited institution, you must request that each college send an official transcript directly to the School of Continuing Studies. If you were placed on probation at your previous institution, you will enter the School of Continuing Studies on probation, and you may enroll in no more than 7 credits while you are on probation. Although you are not required to submit official college transcripts before being allowed to register for classes, we strongly encourage you to do so in order to receive appropriate academic advising.
