Completion of all or part of the general academic courses required in the degree does not guarantee acceptance into the program. However, priority is given to applicants who, at the time of application, have completed the most hours toward the degree and who submit their applications during the priority period. If there are more qualified applicants than seats available in the program, G.P.A. (grade point average) of the general education courses required by the program will be the determining criteria. After the priority period, applications will be accepted on a space-available basis.
