Students seeking admission into a graduate education program may be admitted on a regular or a conditional basis. Regularly admitted students are students who the admissions committee determines have the preparation to successfully complete the program. Students who do not meet the above admission criteria may be considered for conditional admission after a personal interview with the program director.
Conditionally admitted students may enroll in a maximum of four courses (12 credits). Upon completion of the four courses and fulfillment of any specified conditions, the student’s record and admissions criteria will be reviewed to determine the student’s potential for successfully completing the program. If the evaluation of all relevant admission criteria is positive, the student’s admission status will be changed to reflect a regular admission.
