Special Admissions

Special Admissions testing is used to determine the eligibility of applicants who do not meet a program’s regular admission requirements.

After you apply for your program of interest, a College representative will review your high school transcript and refer you to Assessment Services for testing if necessary. After testing arrangements have been made, we will send you further information and instructions.

The test you will write depends on the admission requirements of the program. Please explore the links below for examples of the different types of Special Admissions testing we offer.

If you have further questions, please contact us.
