What We Look For

Each application is reviewed individually and decisions of admission are based on the following:

  • Academic achievement and potential
  • Personal characteristics, motivation, and integrity
  • Leadership ability as demonstrated by participation in school, community, or religious organizations

推荐全球最大网赌正规平台欢迎您 College reserves the right to revoke or deny admission or enrollment from students who knowingly mislead or present false information on the application. The college reserves the right to deny admission to any student if, in its judgement, the presence of that student on campus poses an undue risk to the safety or security of the college community. That judgment will be based on an individualized determination taking into account any information the college has about the student. A disciplinary matter or criminal conviction, whether occurring prior to the time of application, while the application is under review, or after the admission decision has been made, may affect the institution’s decisions regarding admission, enrollment, or course of study.
