Admission to College for Adults: Bachelor's Degrees

Admission into the College for Adults (CFA) as a bachelor's degree-seeking student is based on a holistic evaluation of each candidate's ability to succeed in the degree program into which they seek admission.

Applicants must send the following to the Office of Admission for the College for Adults:

  • Completed online application form.
  • Official transcripts mailed directly from high school and all post-high school educational institutions including college, university, technical, business, medical and professional schools attended (whether or not credits were earned). The General Education Development (GED) Test, including scores, is required for students who did not graduate from high school.  Applicants who have completed any portion of their education outside the United States should consult with their admission counselor for additional instructions.
  • If the applicant's first language is not English, the applicant will be required to submit the results of either the Michigan English Language Assessment Battery Test (MELAB), the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or St. Catherine University's English Language Test.
  • If the previous academic record indicates past difficulty, the candidate may be asked to provide additional information or to participate in a personal interview.

Admission as a bachelor's degree seeking student does not guarantee progression into a particular major course sequence. After enrolling as a degree-seeking student, students will need to meet requirements for progression into major courses. For details, refer to the individual major sections of this catalog.
