Do I need to show you my transcripts for proof of prerequisite?

This is determined by the individual instructor, so please call the department for more information.

Can I use my VA waiver?

Effective September 2014, the College of Continuing Education ceased participation in the Military Tuition Assistance program. Due to lack of state and federal reimbursement, it is not possible to waive fees for veterans and their dependents in programs administered through the College of Continuing Education, including Summer Session and Winter Intersession.

Veterans and their dependents may continue to use waivers toward state-support programs offered during the traditional academic year terms (fall and spring).
