Admissions Requirements

The schools listed on this site all have their own requirements for admission and for completing the program. It’s a good idea to request information from a number of them, so you can compare them and find the one that best fits your specific background and needs.


Some of the key things to ask the schools about include:

1. Previous Schooling: Most programs will typically require a high school diploma or GED.

2. Start Dates: Start dates may vary based on the type of program. Certificate and Diploma programs will usually have more start dates to choose from than Associate Degree programs.

3. Class Times: Many programs will have separate daytime and evening classes that take different lengths of time to complete. Make sure to ask when and where classes will be offered to confirm that it works with your schedule.


Again, all of this varies by school, so you will need to speak with each school to learn about exact requirements and how they may affect you. You will also want to look into financial aid options and graduation requirements.
