STEP 1 FILE YOUR FAFSA.

  • Your first and most important step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form at fafsa.ed.gov. Our federal school code is 004452.

STEP 2 SUBMIT YOUR TRANSCRIPT

  • You need to submit official transcripts from any high schools and/or colleges/universities you have attended. If you received a General Equivalency Diploma (GED), please submit your official GED scores or a copy of your GED diploma. Transcripts are considered official if received in one of three ways:
    • Transmitted electronically from your institution directly to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
    • Mailed directly from the institution to: Enrollment Services, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell, PA 19422
    • Hand-delivered in a signed, sealed envelope to Enrollment Services.
  •  You may request your transcripts electronically through National Student Clearinghouse. If you have earned credit outside the US, have your transcripts evaluated course by course by a NACES-approved credential evaluator.

STEP 3 ASSESS YOUR SKILLS

  • To determine your readiness for college, you must take our placement tests measuring reading, writing and math skills. You may be exempt from one or more tests if:
    •  You have an associate’s degree or higher.
