It’s easier than you think.

Every step of the way, your admission counselor will help you with whatever you need –questions, forms, advice, visiting campus, connecting you with faculty, students, staff, coaches, alumni. In fact, they’ll stay with you until the day you start class, making sure you know where you’re headed.

Our rolling admission policy means there’s no deadline. And there’s no application fee.
