Welcome to the Office of Admissions and Recruitment. We are excited to announce that we have adopted a hybrid work model. 

For immediate assistance, connect with us for a Virtual Office Visit during virtual hours of operation.

We strongly encourage prospective students to schedule a meeting with one of our admissions advisors to discuss their higher education aspirations. Our advisors are here to assist students in exploring their goals, understanding admissions requirements, and navigating through the enrollment process. Let us guide you as you embark on your educational journey with us.
