Applicants must present evidence of graduation from a high school that is state approved, accredited by a regional accrediting association, or accredited by CITA (Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation) and/or a statement attesting to high school graduation. Those holding GED equivalencies must provide evidence of a passing GED score and/or a statement attesting to successful completion of the GED.
The admission procedure requires an exchange of information between the applicant and Shades of Purple, which maintains a staff of representatives for this purpose. These representatives conduct a personal interview with each prospective applicant before any decision is made to submit an application for admission. During the interview, the representative will discuss the College’s educational programs in relation to the applicant’s career preferences, training needs, and individual motivations.
To qualify for admission to Shades of Purple, each applicant must meet the following general requirements:
-Be interviewed by an admissions representative
-Be beyond the age of compulsory high school attendance; and
-Provide an official transcript and/or statement documenting his/her graduation from high school or document his/her achievement of high school graduation equivalency.
