The office of admissions and advising assists students with all aspects of standard, selective, and competitive admissions processes. It provides all students admitted to the college with pre-enrollment services necessary to ensure the successful completion of academic, career, and personal goals.

The admissions and advising staff advises prospective, newly admitted, transfer, and international (F1) students. The staff also assists visiting students from other institutions (who must also consult their home institution advisors). A special effort is made to prepare students for that most critical first semester of college. In addition to pre-enrollment advising, other services include academic and transfer advising for new and currently enrolled students; and transcript evaluation and course clearances for all students based upon coursework completed at other postsecondary institutions, military training and experience, other designated organizations, and specific national examination programs (see Credit for Prior Learning for more information).

The admissions and advising staff welcomes the opportunity to inform students about programs and services that will help them fulfill their goals.
