Pre-Admission Advising

Ensuring Your Readiness to Apply

We are eager to help you determine if the BIS program is the right fit and to guide you through the application process. First, if you have not done so already, we encourage you to review the BIS Curriculum and BIS Admission Requirements. Also, consider attending an online Information Session with the BIS program director, or meet with one of our recruiters at events scheduled statewide.

Next, a pre-admission transcript consultation prior to starting an application will help ensure that you have sufficient transferable course work to be considered for admission. 

To begin the process, complete the online Pre-Admission Request to upload your unofficial transcripts and briefly tell us about your particular interests. Please ensure transcripts do not include any personal, highly sensitive data, such as a Social Security Number (SSN). Remove or obscure any of this sensitive data before uploading. Multiple transcripts should be saved and uploaded as one file.

We will review your transcripts and provide feedback to help you assess your readiness to apply.  If we determine that you need to complete additional course work before applying to the BIS program, we can advise you about course selection and help you map out a timeline for applying. 

Our BIS Transcript Evaluation Guide provides a framework to illustrate the kinds of courses required to fulfill BIS transfer requirements.  Use this guide as a worksheet to determine which of the courses you have already taken might meet the requirements, as well as those courses you still need to take to acquire the required 60 transferable credits and satisfy Liberal Studies Core requirements.
