Admissions

With more than 120 degree, diploma, and certificate programs, you really can get anywhere from here.

Do I need to apply for admission?

You only need to apply for Academic programs—in other words, if you're taking courses for college credit toward a degree, certificate, or diploma. Training courses and programs are not for college credit, and you don’t need to apply to the college to take them—just find the course you want to take and register online in minutes.
