Graduation from high school or equivalent education is required for admission to online undergraduate programs, as well as two years of full-time work experience beyond the applicant’s date of high school completion. The completion of a bachelor's degree program from an accredited institution of higher education is required for admission to online graduate programs.

Additionally, several of the online bachelor's degree programs require attainment of an associate degree from an accredited institution. Please see specific application requirements for additional information.

Application Procedure

Applications for admission should be submitted online through the online application form. No application fee is required.

Students applying for admission to other programs offered at the Providence or Charlotte campuses should refer to the applicable campus catalog for admissions information.

There is no deadline for submitting applications, but students are advised to apply as early as possible before their intended date of enrollment for full consideration, as some programs may fill up.

In completing the application form, students must indicate the semester in which they wish to enroll. Applications are accepted for one of six start dates over three semesters beginning in August or October (fall), January or March (spring), and May or July (summer).

After completing the application form, students are responsible for requesting that their high school guidance office forward to the university an official copy of the secondary school record for admissions consideration and for requesting transcripts from all colleges attended.
