The Admissions Office assists prospective and current students with issues such as: applying to and enrolling in the university, campus tours and visits, the transfer of credits from other institutions, and the awarding of credit earned through exam.

Admissions encompasses  three units, dedicated to Freshman, Transfer, and Graduate students, with each unit requiring a unique application process.

Enrollment Central is able to assist students with the majority of these processes, but for specific information about an application or its requirements, we recommend you consult the corresponding resource below:

Please note that Enrollment Central manages the check in process for the Office of Transfer Services only; if you are a freshman or graduate applicant, you should visit the Admissions Office directly. The Admissions Office is located in the Johnson Center on our Fairfax Campus, and is open Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. You can also contact the Admissions Office via phone: (703) 993-2400 or email:
