Admission Requirements and Recommended Course Sequence

The basic requirement for admission to the undergraduate school is possession of a high school diploma or its equivalent. Under certain circumstances, provisional admission may be granted to students who are unable to provide proof of secondary education.

We strongly encourage every student who is pursuing a program to follow a prescribed sequence of courses until matriculation. You can find the full recommended sequence of courses in the current catalog. Students who are studying for personal enrichment or plan to transfer to another school are not required to follow a recommended sequence.
