Our admissions decisions are based upon a comprehensive review of each completed application. The number of students we can admit is determined by the number of spaces available at each school or college and the quality of the total applicant pool. These change from year to year and vary from college to college within the university. Preference is given to students whose applications, fees or fee waivers, and all required transcripts, test scores, and other supporting documents are submitted by the application due date. We place primary emphasis on each applicant's academic promise as demonstrated by: strength of academic program, grade trends, cumulative GPA, number of credits completed, and English Proficiency Examination results.
