Students interested in applying should bring with them official transcripts and ACT/SAT scores.

“Second Saturdays are part of a continuing effort to make the campus more accessible to the community,” Marshall said.  “We recognize that our traditional days and hours of operation may not always address the needs of our current and future students, so we’re experimenting with a variety of formats and times in hopes of learning to better serve our student population.”
