  1. The prospective student has made a written application to the school
  2. The written application, the student's transcripts or other records of courses taken, proof of financial responsibility for the student, and other supporting documents have been received, reviewed, and evaluated at the school's location in the United States
  3. The appropriate school authority has determined that the prospective student's qualifications meet all standards for admission
  4. The official responsible for admission at the school has accepted the prospective student for enrollment in a full course of study
