Additionally, Selective Admissions Programs, as approved by the Board of Trustees, have a limited number of openings each year and have specific entry level admission requirements that must be met prior to selection for admission to the program. Programs with selective admission criteria will be listed in the Catalog of Courses. The Admissions Office will provide selection criteria for each program upon request.
