Freshmen are admitted to the University following the successful completion of a twelve-year American high school program or its international equivalent as recognized by Webster.
The typical length of full-time undergraduate study at the University is four years. Successful completion culminates in the award of a baccalaureate (bachelor’s) degree. Transfer students previously enrolled at another accredited university may be eligible for transfer credit and complete the program in fewer than four years.
Students whose native or predominant language is not English may need additional English proficiency that requires them to enroll in English as a Second Language (ESL).
1. Choose Your Start Date
We accept applications throughout the year and we encourage you to apply at least four months before your desired start term to ensure that you leave enough time for the visa process.
Freshmen can begin their studies in either the Fall 1 term (August) or Spring 1 (January)
Transfer students can begin their studies in any of the five terms: August, October, January, March or May.
