• We will accept online lectures and labs from regionally accredited institutions.
  • We will accept “Pass” grades
  • In regards to observation hours, at this point and time, we are still requiring observation hours.  However, we do understand the difficulty students face right now with trying to complete their hours.  If by spring 2021, students still are unable to complete their hours due to COVID-19, then we will waive the requirement.  We are trying to be optimistic, but fully understand the reality of the situation.
  • GRE scores are due December 1
    • For the application cycle opening July 2022, we will have a two attempt rule regarding prerequisites.  If a course is taken more than once, we will count the grade on the second attempt.
