All Online Applications will need a well-written PERSONAL STATEMENT no more than one-page, 500 words using 12 pt. font. Your personal statement is an important consideration during the selection process. Your statement should explain why you have chosen to attend college and what your future educational or career plans, personal goals, life history, significant obstacles you have overcome, personal and financial needs that are unique to you, and any special circumstances that have had a significant impact on your academic performance. This helps the reviewer know you better. Emphasize events that have negatively or positively affected your cumulative grade point average.
