Class registration is very simple. There is year round registration meaning you can walk in anytime to apply and there are never any lines. First you make an appointment with a counselor who discusses your goals and interests. You then complete placement testing to see if you are ready for which ever program you choose. Then complete financial aid and pay for registration and wait for you classes to start!
Most importantly to me, this is the only school that offers the program of the career I want to pursue and all the following are huge plus' to that This school attracted me because of the short term programs and also because they focus on each individual student so that they can advance their education. I believe its really important and unique that the counselors give a tour of the school when you come to apply. This school really takes to heart at balancing school and life so you can achieve your goals.
