What impact does the ACT have on my application?
ACT scores currently have no impact on selective process. The ACT can be used for course placement and meeting minimum academic requirements.
What is needed to prove previous degree for additional points in the scoring rubric?
We must receive an official transcript from institution where the degree was completed. Additionally, it is the student's responsibility to confirm this when meeting with the advisor.
When will I be notified about selection to the program?
Decision letters will be sent by March 31. Students not selected will be notified of the required marks to get into the program. Faculty from Allied Health will offer sessions for students to discuss future options and how to improve on future year’s applications.
Where do I turn in my application packet?
The final step of the application process requires you to meet with an Academic Advisor to sign off that all requirements have been met. The application can be turned into the Advisor at that time. Remember, the deadline for completion as noted above.
How do I dispute discrepancies in my application?
Any discrepancies should be directed to the chair of your respective program or the Dean of Allied Health.
