Entrance Requirements

Students must possess the vocational interest and goals related to their chosen program of study, and are able to benefit from instruction. Individual programs may have additional entrance requirements related to licensure or require specific educational credentials. Admission to the college may be initiated through online web admissions, in person, or by mail. Some programs require students to be 18 years of age or older; however, in some programs and evening classes, students can be 16 years of age.

Pre-Registration List

If a student applies for entry into a program in which there is not a current opening, the student must complete an matriculation application, pay a $30 non-refundable admissions fee when registering for classes, take the required placement assessment, and fulfill any program specific entrance requirements in order to be placed on a pre-registration list. The applicant will be notified by telephone, mail or email when an opening becomes available.


A student withdrawing from a program must submit an Add/Drop form to the Enrollment Services Office. Tuition will be refunded if the withdrawal is within the refund period. A student who has withdrawn may re-enroll in the program if an immediate opening is available, or be placed on the pre-registration list.
