Application Evaluation Criteria

Applicants will be evaluated on the following:

  • Academic achievement (overall GPA)
    • A crucial element for student success in this rigorous program is the capability of academic achievement. A student’s history of academic performance is indicative of future academic achievement. Applicants will be evaluated based on their overall college GPA.
  • Prerequisite GPA
    • Prerequisite and support courses for the program provide students with a solid foundation of knowledge and are essential for success in the program.
    • All required prerequisite courses must be completed with at least a ‘C’ grade and an overall 2.7 prerequisite GPA.
