As an international student you will need to complete a separate International Student Application form.
For the International Student Application you will need to download, print, complete and send it to us via fax, mail or as a scanned document.
Please complete the application as soon as possible so that we can enter you in our system and begin to send you information about our programs and college.
Please note that a complete application packet will include the items listed below. An I-20 will be issued once all the materials listed below have been received by the college. The first step, however, is to complete the application.
We request that this application be returned six months prior to the anticipated enrollment date. All Supporting documentation needs to be submitted at least 5 weeks prior to the start of the term in which you first plan to enroll.
