Admissions & Recruitment

The University today is part of the only historically black Land Grant university system in the United States.

For new students, the first official contact with the University is often through the Office of Admissions and Recruitment. This unit is responsible for recruiting and admitting undergraduate students to the University. Responsibilities include the development of effective school relations programs with high schools and community colleges, recruitment of prospective freshmen and undergraduate transfer students, evaluation of academic credit being transferred to the University, the admission of resident and nonresident students to the University, and providing orientation information about the University's important scheduled events.
