General Admissions Policy
The admissions procedure is dependent upon a free exchange of information between the prospective student and the College. The College maintains a staff of Educational Representatives responsible for this liaison. Our representatives conduct a personal interview with each prospective student and explain the College's program in detail.
Each application submitted for admission, along with other information, will be reviewed by the President or her designee. If the prospective student is accepted, he/she is notified by the President or her designee. If the prospective student is rejected, he/she will be notified in writing.
Students in need of tuition financing must submit appropriate applications as early as possible prior to anticipated entry. Arrangements must be made prior to the commencement of classes for payment in full of the total cost of the program.
At the time of enrollment, the entering student is required to sign a transcript release form to enable the College to obtain a copy of his/her high school transcript, or results of a GED test. A student may enroll in a program up to, and including the date when the class is scheduled to start.
Applicants for all programs must possess a high school diploma or a GED certificate. In addition, all applicants must pass an entrance exam administered by the College. No prior business education or training is necessary for admission. The state of Louisiana has no secondary school completion credential certification for homeschoolers, therefore the institution requires a GED certificate for these students to enroll.
Qualified applicants who desire to enroll in one of the programs offered must apply in person. The Admissions Department is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. One of our Educational Representatives will guide the applicant through the following steps:
Choosing from the courses available.
Touring our facilities and equipment.
Arranging for applicable test(s).
The admissions process is comprised of the following steps:
Meet with an Educational Representative.
Complete the application for admissions.
Take Admissions Test.
Tour the facilities.
Attend an Orientation Session on or before the start date of class.
Applicants who are high school graduates or who have earned a high school equivalency diploma (GED), will be asked to show proof by bringing in the original diploma or fill out a transcript request. We will send for a copy of the transcript for the student records.
If student reenters before 180 days of withdrawing and reenters in the same program then student will enter into same status as he/she left. Students wishing to reenter after 180 days after withdrawing or into a different program may do so without penalty and will be assessed tuition as a proportion of the total program cost for only the credit hours for which the student is re-entering. Any prior balances must be cleared before the student will be permitted to re-enter.
Orientation and Additional Requirements for Admission
Incoming students will be provided with a comprehensive orientation on school policies, drug and alcohol prevention, crime statistics, program information, etc., prior to entrance into regularly scheduled classes. Students will be provided Satisfactory Academic Progress guidelines as described in our SAP policy. The information given to the student at orientation is not limited to the above and could include other information. At the orientation, students will be provided with an opportunity to discuss the information described in the catalog and program handbook, school policies, program requirements, dress code, attendance requirements, etc. and allows enrollees to become acquainted with fellow classmates, faculty and staff of Cameron College.
