Please note: To support the college’s efforts to keep our campus healthy and safe, our team is currently working a hybrid schedule. Our working hours are still 8am to 4:30pm Eastern. Any emails received will be responded to within one business day. We are also happy to meet with you—whether via Zoom or over the phone —within those times. Our toll-free line (1-888-522-8371) is monitored regularly.
