How Do I Begin?

First, apply to the University following these steps:

1. Complete the application for admission.

2. Submit official transcripts from each school, college or university previously attended the Admissions Office.  Official transcripts are those sent directly to Spalding from the issuing institution.  Any transcript marked “issued to student” or any transcript that is hand delivered by the student is not considered an official transcript.

  • First Year Students (less than 24 hours of college coursework):  Submit official high school transcript or present evidence of satisfactory scores from the test of General Education Development (GED) and ACT or SAT test score report(s).  Test scores are not required of applicants who have been out of high school for five years or more. Submit official transcripts from each college and/or university previously attended (if applicable).
  • Transfer Students (more than 24 hours of college coursework):  Submit official transcripts from each college and/or university previously attended.  No test scores are required.
  • Adult Accelerated Program Students (at least 23 years old):  Submit official high school transcript or present evidence of satisfactory scores from the test of General Education Development (GED) and official transcripts from each college and/or university previously attended.

3. File your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.FAFSA.ed.gov or call 1-800-4-FED-AID for a paper copy.  Financial aid applications should be completed as soon as possible after Jan 1.  Spalding’s school code is = 001960. After you complete the FAFSA and have been admitted to the university, you will receive a letter from the Financial Aid office with details of your financial aid package and cost of attendance.

Once you are admitted:

  • Submit the $100.00 non-refundable enrollment deposit to the Admissions Office.  This tuition deposit is due before you can register for class and is credited toward your student account.  (Deposit not required for Adult Accelerated Program students)
  • You will be contacted by your Admissions Counselor to schedule your initial advising appointment
  • During your advising session, select and enroll in your classes
  • Attend Orientation & Start Classes!
