Undergraduate and Graduate Admissions Process

Get started today with Associate and Bachelor’s Programs in Business, Healthcare, Technology, and more.

Phase 1 – Complete Your Application, It’s Easy!

The first step in the admissions process is submitting your application. We have a short online form that takes about 15-20 minutes to complete.

Shortly after your application is received and reviewed by the admissions team, an admissions advisor specializing in your area of academic interest will contact you to set up an appointment for Phase 2.

Phase 2 – Schedule an Introduction with our Admissions Office

This discussion may be held over the phone (Skype for our online candidates) or in-person at either our Naples or Fort Myers campus. The purpose of the introduction discussion is to help you determine if Hodges University is the right fit for your higher educational needs and to collaboratively build the custom pathway for your education at Hodges University.

Some documentation may be necessary for consideration with your full application. Your Admissions Advisor will discuss any needed documentation with you during your meeting. Undergraduate students may also need to complete a placement exam.

Phase 3 – Submit Needed Documentation

The type of documents necessary may vary based on your program of interest, academic history, your method of payment, and citizenship status. Your admissions advisor will guide you through the needed documentation.

Required documentation may include your completed application with fees, transcripts, financial aid documents, copies of personal identification, admissions essay, and more. We’ll provide an easy checklist for you to follow and will support you every step of the way.

Don’t worry; we’ll be there to assist you through the documentation process. We make it as easy as possible!

Phase 4 – Acceptance, Registration, and Orientation. You’re Nearly There!

If accepted into Hodges University, you’ll know right away. We usually have an answer for you in about 24 hours (business hours). Congratulations! Your admissions advisor will assist you in selecting and registering for your courses. You’ve made the first step to achieving a great future full of opportunity.

New student orientation will take place a few days before the term begins; you will receive notification of times and dates for scheduled orientations at each campus. We highly recommend attendance at your orientation. If you plan on taking your program entirely online or choose to add some online courses to your campus-based program, please review the student technology preparedness checklist.
