Admissions Procedures

Entrance Requirements

Interested candidates should submit at the time of enrollment:

  • A completed enrollment application via our Enrollment Page
  • Evidence of earning a high school diploma or GED, or the recognized equivalent. Official documents must be submitted within 90 days of enrollment.
    • Students who have attended an accredited university or college recognized by the U.S. Department of Education may submit an official school transcript in lieu of a high school diploma. The transcript must be mailed directly to Brighton from the university/college.
  • Brighton’s guidelines in regard to homeschooling verification include the submission of a high school transcript form, filled and signed by the parent/guardian/administrator who was in charge of teaching and record-keeping the lesson plans (if the parent registered with an independent educational institution in the State where both student/parent resides, the institution can provide this to Brighton). The required form must include the final grade per subject taught, the credit awarded, and GPA (Grade Point Average), as well as the years each course was taught (see sample attached). A signed diploma can be used in conjunction with the transcripts submitted by the parent/guarding/administrator, but not as a sole form of proof that the required didactic hours and academic subjects were taught at every level of each academic year. However, if an independent educational institution in the State is issuing the diploma, this can be a sole form of proof the student completed his/her high school hours/subjects required.
  • Sample Home School Verification form

Candidates for admission must meet the following requirements upon enrollment:

  • Be 18 years of age or older or provide permission from responsible parties to enroll
  • Have the ability to speak, read, and write English fluently
  • Have the ability to be self-motivated and work independently
  • Have the ability to use a personal computer and the internet
  • Have the ability to receive and send email
  • Nurse Paralegal students must submit evidence of L.P.N, R.N., B.S.N., or M.D. credential, or a two-year Associate Degree in Nursing.
    • In addition, LPN prospective students must submit transcripts from an LPN state approved program, an LPN license from the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN), and one year of working experience under the supervision of an RN or MD.

Transfer of Credit

Credit for Previous Training

Brighton only accepts previous training from past students of Brighton or Brighton College. No other credit or previous training will be evaluated or considered.

It is highly recommended a student complete all courses within the program of study. Determination of credit will be made upon receipt of and evaluation of an official transcript and course description. Please contact the Student Services Department for a Transfer of Credit review.

Transfer of Credit Hours

Brighton neither guarantees nor implies that other institutions will accept credit hours or previous training earned at the College. A student who anticipates transferring to another institution should first contact the other institution to determine whether or not their credit hours or previous training will transfer. Policies governing the transferability of credits vary greatly from school to school.
