  • A $30 application fee is required at the time you submit your application. This fee is non-refundable but may be waived if you are receiving public assistance. (The online application will help you determine if you qualify for a fee waiver.) You may submit the application without paying the fee, but your application will not be complete until we receive payment.
  • If you are a non-degree-seeking student (only taking one or two classes), the application and fee are not required. Register on our Take a Class page instead.
  • The application will ask you to designate a program of study (a major). If you haven't chosen a program of study, designate Undecided. Note that your selection is only your initial program of study designation. You can change this during the advising phase of the admissions process.
