Please note:

  • Before you can be admitted to enroll at the university to pursue an academic degree you must enter your personal information online.
  • Simply entering your personal information online does not mean you have been admitted to the university to pursue your selected major. You must first be officially admitted and enroll at the university in order to begin a degree program.
