Frequently Asked Questions

Visit our online application portal to register for a course or class. Our admissions staff can also help you with your application if you stop by our offices at 10000 W 75th Street, Suite 241 Merriam, KS 66204. Applicants are encouraged to visit our main website to review admission requirements and details specific to their program of interest before applying. Registrations are conditional until all fees, paperwork, and admission requirements are completed.

All admission requirements must be submitted before the specified program start date. Failure to submit all requirements by the posted start date will result in forfeiture of seat in the upcoming program. Students unable to meet the requirements for admission on time will have the opportunity to transfer their registration to the next available start date.

We are not able to accept federal financial aid (FAFSA) at this time. However, we work with various local organizations, businesses, and employers that provide financial assistance to students. For example, qualified applicants will receive financial assistance covering full tuition and fees from KC Scholars. And Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas offers financial assistance covering 50% of tuition to qualified applicants.
