Admissions Requirements

We have detailed requirements for admission to Brightwood Career Institute below. Should you have any questions about these standards or the procedures surrounding admissions, our committed Admissions Representatives are here to provide answers.

To apply for enrollment at Brightwood Career Institute, it is required that at least one of the following standards has been met:

  • Achieved high school graduation
  • Earned a General Education Development (GED) certificate
  • Obtained a Home Study certificate or transcript from a Home Study program that is equivalent to high school level and is recognized by the student's home state
