  • Hi,

    Can you clarify what you mean by "when do I start the program" so that I understand your question better to assist you.

  • Where can I view & apply for classes?

  • Hello,

    Once you submit your enrollment application, the college will email you with the steps to log into your student portal and register for classes. If you have already submitted your application and it has been longer than 2 business days, please call the admissions office to obtain your student information. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Thank you,
