Application

Students are required to come to the college to complete the college and university application forms once they've decided to pursue a bachelor's degree at the college.

In addition, the students will be required to pay a small application fee to the college for this purpose. The academic qualifications will be reviewed by college admissions experts right away to determine your eligibility.
