Begin Your Application
It's helpful to have the following information handy:
- A copy of your transcripts listing dates of attendance and degree and credits earned.
- For military students, documents showing your date of separation and status.
If you don't have these documents, fill out the application to the best of your ability. An admissions counselor will follow up if documentation is needed.

You'll be asked to submit official transcripts electronically or by mail.
