We offer a rolling admissions cycle, so you can apply anytime year-round. With the exception of the MSN programs, applications are reviewed once we receive all required application materials. MSN applications are reviewed quarterly in advance of each term. Please check with an admissions counselor for program-specific deadlines.

Can I receive financial aid?2018-06-17T12:57:47-04:00

Yes! The college offers federal financial aid for students enrolled in an online degree programs, but not certificate or continuing education courses. Eligible students who have schedules that will allow them to complete courses on time, and who also plan to remain enrolled without breaks, may find that federal aid is a good option. Funding is available through both the Federal Stafford Loan and the Federal Pell Grant (for undergraduates only). For students who desire a more flexible financing option, please contact the Office of Financial Aid for credit-based educational loans that can be used to meet tuition and summer residency costs.


How does online learning work?2019-08-12T14:33:54-04:00

Our courses are delivered via a learning portal, Brightspace. They operate in an asynchronous format, meaning you will have set due dates for assignments in your courses, but are not required to be logged on at a particular time.*  You can complete the coursework at times that are convenient for your schedule with the established due dates. Online students engage with their instructor and classmates through discussion boards and individual feedback from the instructor.

*Courses in the Master of Health Administration program include one live REEL session per week. A day and time that works for students is determined by the instructor each term.

Is the GRE or GMAT required for graduate programs?2019-08-12T14:32:03-04:00
