Get Started

Preparing to start school can be a busy time. That’s why, to help you stay organized and on track, we’ve put together a couple quick checklists and resource guides for new students. Think of them as your basic “to-do” lists with all the important steps you need to take to get you set up and registered for classes.

Next Steps

Take a look at the checklist that’s appropriate for you. If you are an international student, either preparing to come to the U.S. to study or already living here, review the International Checklist. If you are U.S. student, review the Domestic Checklist.

Financing Your Education

Full- and part-time domestic students can apply for financial aid. Even if you don’t think you’d qualify, we suggest that you explore the possibility first. We also support military service members and veterans with a variety of scholarship opportunities, including the Yellow Ribbon program.
