Our admissions team is available to answer your questions. For the fastest response time, email is often the best method. Most questions can be answered via email and we can provide URLs with even more information, however we would be happy to communicate with you in whatever way works best.

Thirty-minute advising appointments can be scheduled every Tuesday & Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. A member of our admissions team will go over your transcripts and discuss with you the requirements for your program option of choice and the different cohorts or teachable subjects available.

There are no drop-ins.
