Please note: Please feel free to apply at any point in the year. We will be accepting applications throughout the year, but new students should expect to wait until the fall to be allowed to enroll. However, if there are openings in a semester, and you are on the waitlist, we will contact you about registering for classes. Students who are signing up for full time status are more likely to be accepted, however there may be exceptions along the way.
