  2. When the background check and fingerprinting are cleared, the Admission, Progression and Retention Sub-Committee will then offer the student full admission into the Freshman Direct Admit Track. The cost of all components of these procedures including any repeat procedures if needed is the responsibility of the applicant/student.
