Admission Information

A Committee on Admissions reviews all applications for admission to the Liberal Studies Program. In general, the program seeks those graduates from accredited institutions of higher learning who ranked in the upper half of their class as undergraduates and who maintained a B (3.00) average during the final two years of college. In view of the broad nature of the program, no specific undergraduate major is preferred.

Students who have been accepted will be notified in writing and invited to the next orientation for new students. New Student Orientations take place three times a year in mid-May, mid-August, and mid-December. During the orientation, students will be assigned an adviser and begin the process of working out a program of study. Each student will be able to register for his or her first course at the end of the orientation.

Those who have no undergraduate degree but who have special qualifications may be accepted into certain courses as non-degree students.
