Reviewing your résumé allows the Admissions Committee to better understand how the professional, personal, extra curricular, and volunteer experiences in which you have participated have shaped you as a person and as a prospective student. The accomplishments and responsibilities highlighted in your résumé also serve as an invaluable demonstration of your motivation, maturity, and focus.
** Personal Statement
The personal statement provides you with the opportunity to communicate your particular strengths and your level of intellectual capacity. It helps the Admissions Committee to gain a better understanding of you as a person and as a prospective student. It provides evidence of achievement that may not be reflected in other parts of your application and it presents the professional and life events that have influenced your academic trajectory, professional work, and/or your decision to return to school. It can be particularly helpful to us in making an admissions decision if you are a transfer student who has no previous work experience.
*** Official Transcripts
If you have previously studied at the college level, we require an official transcript from each college or university that you have attended. In the case of the Associate’s Degrees, transcripts for all high schools and colleges or universities attended are required. The Office of Admissions can review your application if you provide unofficial copies of your transcripts. However, if you are admitted, you must submit all official documents within your first semester of study. A transcript is considered "official" only when received by the Office of Admissions in a sealed envelope. If you are admitted you may also be required to submit an official high school transcript. In the case of an Access applicant, a transcript is considered "official" only when received by the Office of Admissions in a sealed envelope and indicates the date the high school diploma was earned. For applicants to the Baccalaureate programs, a transcript is considered "official" only when received by the Office of Admissions in a sealed envelope and indicates the date the Associates degree was earned.
