If you are a Freshman student, your academic information will be processed to determine if you are required to take any placement exams. If the English or Math Placement exams are required, you will take these exams during your orientation session. Once you have selected an orientation date, you will receive a letter indicating if you are required to take the exams.
If you are a Transfer student, and have successfully completed a university level Math and English course equivalent, you DO NOT have to take the Math or English Placement exams. If the English or Math Placement exams are required, you will receive notification in the mail. You will take all placement exams during your orientation session.
We accept high school courses taken under the national Advanced Placement (AP) program prior to admission to the University. A minimum score of three (3) on the qualifying examinations is required for award of credit. No more than 24 credits earned by such examinations may be applied toward graduation requirements. Please submit the official score report from Collegeboard.com for review for transfer credits.
If you are taking any Advanced Placement (AP) Courses or completing college coursework while still in high school, please be sure to have the official AP scores and/or college transcript(s) forwarded to the Admissions Office.
All first year students are required to complete a health form. This health form must be completed and returned in order for the student to be treated at the University health clinic. **Please Note: If you are a Health Sciences student (Nursing, Dietetics, Respiratory Therapy or Radiology) there are additional forms that you must complete...please refer to this section on the New Student Information page.
Each student is assigned an advisor from within their academic department. Once you arrive on campus, you will be instructed to visit the department secretary from within your intended major. You will then be provided with contact information for your advisor.
