  • An SAT score is not required.
  • Although past academic records are required and reviewed, more focus is placed on a student’s present motivation to earn a degree than with previous academic performance.
  • The Office of University Admissions makes every effort to notify candidates of their admission decision approximately three weeks after a completed application is received.
