Prerequisite coursework

All prerequisite (prereq) courses must be completed prior to beginning the program; without exception.  Students may apply with outstanding prereq courses so long as the student demonstrates a plan to complete those courses before matriculating in the program. Accepted students completing prereq courses while applying will need to submit a final transcript demonstrating the successful completion of these courses.  Comparable courses from regionally accredited institutions are acceptable.  No prerequisite coursework with a grade below C will be accepted.  The program does not have a "statute of limitations" on prerequisite courses.  Applicants will be considered to have met the prerequisites even if the courses were taken many years ago.
