Admissions

Forrest College seeks to enroll students who are motivated to learn and achieve and who have a genuine interest in furthering their education.  Academic qualifications are important, but as important are the motiva­tion and interest of the applicant.   Our applicants are guided into programs where they will achieve skills leading to their personal and career objectives.

Those applying for admission to degree or diploma programs must have a high school diploma or a recognized equivalency.

Complete an application for admission form and pay a non-refundable application fee of $50.00 (U.S. non-residents are charged an International Student Application Processing Fee of $250.00)

  • Provide evidence of graduation from high school or its equivalent (signed statement from student is sufficient for application).  Official transcripts will be requested and received normally during a student’s first quarter
  • Undergo preliminary evaluations (In some cases, an interview with a program’s coordinator may be required.)
  • Complete financial arrangements

While the basic admission requirement to the College is a high school diploma or the equivalent, certain programs of study and certain classifications (e.g., international students) have some additional requirements.  Special program requirements will vary depending upon the area of study in which the applicant is interested.

Each applicant is given individual consideration for admission. The decision to admit an applicant is based upon preliminary evaluations as well as a personal interview and demonstrated attitude of career readiness.  If there is a question as to the applicant’s readiness or motivation, the applicant may be required to interview with the Admissions Committee.  An applicant is refused admission if, in the judgment of the Admissions Committee, the College is not able to meet the learning needs or the professional ambitions of an individual.  The Admissions Committee notifies all applicants of acceptance or denial. The Admissions Committee is composed of the Financial Aid Officer, Records Officer, Admissions Officer, Allied Health Coordinator, and the Vice President for Administration and Programs, and others as determined by the Administration.

A student not currently enrolled at Forrest College may register for class(es) as a single subject student.  Single subject students are persons without the intent of completing a program of study.  Single subject students must meet all entrance requirements, and may register for any course offered by Forrest College provided that they have taken the necessary prerequisite(s) for the course, unless they may chose to audit said course.

Any student that has been withdrawn from the College and desires to return must reapply for admission.  Any re-entering student who has been withdrawn from the College for longer than two quarters will be required to undergo all preliminary evaluations.  Each re-entering student will be evaluated by the Admissions Committee to determine their suitability for reentry based on academic history, general conduct and the meeting of prior financial obligations.  In some instances, the applicant will be requested to appear before the Admissions Committee. Applicants will be notified of the decision of the Admissions Committee.

Midterm admission provides the opportunity to complete 10-12 weeks of study in 5 or 6 weeks and allows industrious students the opportunity to get a head start in complet­ing their programs.
