A limited number of students may be admitted on probationary admission by consent of the Admissions Committee. An interview may be required.

Students admitted on probationary admission will need to successfully master all competencies in which they are registered within their first 6-month term of enrollment. If all competencies are successfully mastered, a student's probationary admission status will be removed. If a student does not successfully master all competencies within the first 6-month term, the student would not be eligible to register for the next term. 

Individuals who are denied admission on the basis of the criteria listed above may appeal to the Admissions Office.  The appeal must be made in writing and must specify the admission requirement(s) to be reviewed.  Any supporting evidence not originally submitted with admissions materials should be included.  Please contact the Admissions Office for further information.
