In addition to meeting with an Enrollment Services Representative, some of our programs include an additional interview with a department faculty member, such as a Program Director or instructor, as part of the enrollment process. These are usually brief and give you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have.
Your Enrollment Services Representative will let you know if an interview is required and can help arrange a time that’s convenient.
Complete an entrance examination*
We do require a skills assessment evaluation. The exam and minimum scores vary from program to program. Your Enrollment Services Representative can provide you information about the specific assessment tool we use as well as our retesting policies.
