    • Applicants who do not qualify for full matriculation and have an undergraduate GPA between 2.5 and 2.84, may be conditionally admitted at the discretion of the program director.

    • Graduates of foreign universities are required to take the GRE and submit their scores.
    • U.S. students with a GPA below 2.85 may, at the discretion of the dean, be asked to take the GRE or other diagnostic tests. Admission will be based upon consideration of test results, previous academic performance, and related employment, if applicable.
