Students with international college/university coursework must provide an approved credit evaluation, if transfer credit is desired.  The evaluator must be certified by NACES (National Association for Credential Evaluation Services).

5. Meet with an Enrollment Advisor and Register for Classes

Contact a campus near you to meet with an enrollment advisor and plan your schedule of classes. After your meeting, you'll register for classes and receive a printed schedule and a statement for tuition and fees.
