If the previous educational institution does not provide a transcript, the student must have their original copy with an Apostille government stamp sent as proof of completion. A copy will be made by the admissions staff and the original will be sent back to the potential student at their expense.
According to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, no person in the United States shall, based on sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal Financial Assistance. Qualified applicants are accepted regardless of their race, color, sex, religious beliefs, physical handicap, or national origin.
To apply for admissions, the prospective applicant must make an appointment to meet (online or in person) with the University’s representative who will provide all the necessary information related to the University and the program of study under consideration.

Student identity verification is conducted during the admissions process to verify that the admitted student who participates in and completes coursework and assessments is the same student who is awarded credit. To accomplish this, applicants are required to provide government issued identification with their application. During the admissions process, a video interview is conducted with Admissions staff who compare the collected identification with the applicant being interviewed. This verification is documented as part of the student’s record. Following admission, students are provided unique login credentials as further assurance that the verified student is the same individual who completes coursework within the online classroom.
The University also assures that the admitted student is the same student who completes coursework through its proctoring process. Once during each course, students are subject to individualized proctoring with their instructor. Students are required to appear on video and respond to a series of subject-related questions presented by the instructor. Questions are selected that demonstrate familiarity with course subject material and passed assessments. During this session, the instructor compares the student in attendance with the identification information on file.
