To become part of the university, all prospective students must first apply through the admissions office. Members of the Admissions office will be happy to answer questions about life at the university, arrange tours and classroom visits, and assist you in completing your application, including the fulfillment of all of the university’s admissions requirements.

Financial Aid

More than 90 percent of incoming students receive some form of financial aid. The financial aid staff works with students to help clarify questions regarding financial assistance. Students are encouraged to take an active role in understanding the financial aid process and eligibility requirements/criteria for programs in which they plan to participate.

Advising and Registration

Every student works with a dedicated faculty advisor starting their first semester. Your advisor will help you develop a curriculum plan, select a major and offer general advice about succeeding in the School of Arts and Sciences. Advisors are also knowledgeable about the entrance and graduation requirements for each major. What’s more, they’re happy to help students in any way they can.
