In observation of guidelines about health and safety, the majority of classes in the fall 2021 semester are either on-line or hybrid. We anticipate a larger percentage of classes in spring 2022 being in person, and we look forward to welcoming all of our vaccinated students back to campus. At the moment, applications and all supporting documentation must be submitted online via the University Application Processing Center. The health and safety of our students is our paramount concern.
