The admission process begins with an enrollment application. Please bring photo identification, your high school diploma or your general equivalency diploma. Bring any academic transcripts you may have, which will be evaluated for transfer credits. If you have previously earned certifications other than your high school diploma, bring these with you. Begin to research your immunization records. Immunization records will be required prior to class start. At this point you can take the admission exam IF APPLICABLE.
