Step 4: Registration

When a decision has been made on the program of choice and funding options have been discussed, the Student Admissions Advisor will guide you through the enrollment process.

Step 5: Orientation

New Student Orientation takes place the week prior to your program start date. You can expect an email from Willis College with details regarding the date and time of the orientation.

What Our Graduates Are Saying

When I first started at Willis I was a shy, self-conscious girl… but Willis changed all that! My time at Willis was knowledgeable, fun and most importantly self-rewarding. The PSW program was amazing. I learned so much. All of the staff are absolutely awesome; they looked at you as a person and not just a number filling up a seat.
