Our admissions process is designed to be quick and easy:

Admission to Mid-State
Admission refers to the process of applying for acceptance at Mid-State. Individuals wanting to complete a degree or diploma—or simply take undergraduate classes as a non-program-specific student—need to apply prior to taking classes. Mid-State maintains an open-door admissions policy for all prospective students. High school graduation or completion of the HSED or GED is required.

Take a look at the program information guide listed under each program on the Programs page for more program specific information.

Returning to Mid-State
Great, we would love to welcome you back! A student who was previously admitted and enrolled in a program and does not enroll in classes for at least two consecutive semesters is withdrawn from the college. However, the student may reapply at any time.


If you have any questions about the application process, please feel free to reach out by calling 888.575.6782 or check your email for a way to get in touch with your advisor directly. No question is silly, and we are eager to meet you and walk you through any step along the way.
