Franklin University accepts applications for admission on a rolling basis throughout the calendar year, and students may select from several dates each semester to begin coursework.
To ensure a strong, successful start at Franklin, there are several steps to complete, including submission of an application online, the submission of official transcripts from previously attended institutions, the identification of financing options, completion of placement testing (for students not transferring in any college-level credits), a registration appointment to select courses and completion of our online orientation program.
To be certain that students have enough time to complete all steps necessary to begin classes when desired, application to Franklin University should be completed several weeks in advance of the intended course start date. Meeting these recommended dates helps students to maximize their scheduling options based on their preferences and personal schedules and to have adequate time for appropriate financial planning.
Franklin recommends that the admission application process be completed at least 4-6 weeks in advance of the student’s intended course start date. Applications are not considered complete until all required transcripts have been received. Once the application is complete, a first-term registration appointment will be scheduled with an Undergraduate Admissions Advisor. Meeting with an Admissions Advisor provides the student with the opportunity to select first trimester courses, get final questions answered, and start the Franklin Experience in the best way possible. This is a required meeting for new students. Additionally, each new student must complete an online, one-hour New Student Orientation Program soon after they register for classes, and at least three days prior to the start of the first course.
While meeting the recommended completion dates is not required, it is important to allow enough time to complete all required activities to begin courses on the date that best meets the student’s individual needs. Franklin University’s accelerated curriculum may require additional preparation in advance of the first class meeting.
