Before you get started, please review the following application notes:

Applicant Name Section
Please include your full given name. Do not use any nicknames. Only fill in the "Other Name" section if your name has changed.
General Information Section
Online applications must include the applicant's Social Security Number. If you do not have a SSN or choose not to give it, you may not complete an online application. Please contact the Office of Admissions for information at ext. 2287 or 2240.
Current Address Section
Residency is determined at the time the application is submitted. If you state that you have been at your "current address" for three months or less, you may be charged Out-of-County or Out-of-State tuition (depending on your previous address) until you bring documentation proving your current address to the Registration Office. Please contact the Registration Office at ext. 2247 to inquire about permissible forms of residency documentation.
Choose whether you are a United States citizen or a non-US citizen. If you are a non-US citizen holding a Permanent Resident Alien card or are in the US on a visa, you will need to complete a hard copy admissions application. You will also need to present the appropriate documentation to the Admissions Office at the Wye Mills Campus (Dorchester Administration Building) prior to application acceptance. Please contact the Office of Admissions at ext. 2240 for more information regarding enrollment procedures for non-US Citizens.
