Competitive Programs

Admissions for Competitive Programs

Some of our programs are very popular, and therefore high in demand. They are called competitive because only some spots are available.

Because we hear from more students who want to study here than we have spots for, we give priority based on the highest academic achievement in the admission requirements for the program.

After the February 1 equal consideration date arrives, applications are either waitlisted or accepted on a first come, first serve basis following the admission requirements if there are any spots left in the program.
