Applicants should be prepared to supply the following information:

  • Full contact information (mailing address, phone number, and email address).
  • A statement no more than two pages long that highlights their suitability for the program, to be attached to the electronic application.
  • An unofficial copy of their transcripts (high school transcripts for entering freshmen, college or university transcripts for current FVSU and transfer students) , to be attached to the electronic application.
  • One letter of recommendation from a high school or college instructor who has taught the student, to be attached to the electronic application.
