Applicants electing the rolling decision option will receive their admissions decision within two weeks of receipt of their completed application. Because the number of spaces available in the entering class is necessarily limited, rolling admission continually narrows the opportunities for admission as the cycle progresses. As a result, students are advised to submit applications as early as possible to assure optimal admission and financial aid consideration. Additionally, upon receiving admission, students are advised to submit the required enrollment deposit promptly to reserve their space in the incoming class.

The school schedule was very convenient as I had some face-to-face classes, some online classes, and hybrids. I was able to balance my work and a school schedule in a healthy manner. My teachers and advisors were always there to answer my questions and or concerns. I’ve made many friends and professional contacts at FSC.
