Recruitment and Admissions reviews applications and notifies applicants of missing credentials, but the responsibility for obtaining all admission credentials rests with the applicant. Completed applications are reviewed as soon as all credentials are received. Recruitment and Admissions will notify the applicant of the decision in writing.

An enrollment deposit is required in order to reserve a space in the entering class. The University has a commitment to admit only qualified students. Once credentials are submitted Recruitment and Admissions, they become the property of Barry University and will not be surrendered. Photocopies of credentials will not be made from the student file. Any concealment by an applicant of previous college registration or previous academic or disciplinary record in a secondary school or college will immediately cancel and nullify the admissions process at Barry University.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to take required tests and have the results forwarded to Barry University and to make sure all credentials required are supplied to Recruitment and Admissions. No action will be taken on any application until all application credentials have been received. Applications must be processed and acceptance verified no later than 10 days prior to the published date of registration for the semester in which the student wishes to matriculate.
