There are typically four scenarios a student can anticipate once they complete the online application.
- Acceptance: Students that exceed minimum criteria will receive an acceptance email with their assigned academic advisor who will provide course recommendations for the following semester.
- Decision After Grades: Students that are in progress for GPA &/or coursework will receive an email detailing their in progress materials. A final decision email will be sent after final grades are posted.
- Not admissible: Students that do not meet minimum criteria will receive an email indicated they are not admissible. We encourage students who are not admitted to continue working with their current academic advisor.
- Re-application: Students that do not meet minimum criteria after final grades are posted but have a high potential to meet minimum criteria at the end of the following semester, may be encouraged to reapply. Reapplication does not guarantee admission.
