Creating an account

I am unable to create an account. Whenever I type in a password, it gives me an error, I have even used suggested passwords. It will NOT let me sign up to create my account in order to fill out the college application.

  • Hi,

    It typically takes 1-2 business days to receive an email from your college providing you with your student ID and student portal information. If you have not received your email from the college, please reach out to your records & admissions office. Applications are still being downloaded and processed during the current pandemic. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

    Thank you

Now that you have successfully submitted your admissions application please allow 1 to 2 business days for the college to contact you with your student information; e.g. student ID #, registration times, assessment information, and orientation. If it has been more than 1-2 business days, please contact your college's records/admissions department.
