How to confirm your offer of Admissions

Submit your completed response form

To assure your seat in our upcoming class, submit your completed response form in your acceptance packet by the deadline given in the acceptance letter.


  1. Submit your $100 Commitment Deposit

All accepted students are required to pay a non-refundable $100 Commitment Tuition Deposit. The Commitment Deposit enables each student to confirm enrollment at a college to which s/he has been offered admission and will be applied towards your first semester tuition charges. For the Fall semester, the deposit must be received/postmarked by May 1, the national deadline for accepting offers of admission and financial aid. Students admitted after the May 1st deadline are strongly encouraged to pay the deposit as soon as possible.

The Commitment Deposit will be waived for Veterans, SEEK students, for students who file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $3,000 or less. Deposit waivers based on financial hardship will be considered based on demonstrated financial need.
