Getting Started

The first step in your educational journey is to apply online. Please allow up to one week for processing. Next, you will need to take an admissions test and meet entrance requirements for your chosen program. You can find a quick guide to program requirements on our Fast Facts information sheet. Please register and pay for the test at least one day in advance. If you are in high school, the test is free. 

Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis and will continue until programs are full or the school year begins. You may only enroll in one career program at a time.

Note: This process is for all programs except practical nursing and surgical technology.
