All classes with the exception of the clinics and skills-based courses are being taught remotely for this fall. At this time, plans for the spring or next fall have not been announced and it largely depends on the state of Covid-19 over the following months. We are looking forward to welcoming students back to campus once it is safe.

We will send you a Financial Aid Offer Letter once we receive your FAFSA. The 20201-22 FAFSA will become available on October 1st. Please complete it as early as possible using 2019 income information. The Award Offer Letter will contain additional information regarding the next steps in the loan process.
2. What if the scholarship I received with my acceptance letter is not on my Financial Aid Offer Letter?
Scholarships will be added to your Financial Aid Offer Letter once you pay your seat deposit and return the Scholarship Acknowledgment Form. We will then send you a revised Award Offer Letter that will include your scholarship.
