Admission Categories

Two categories of students are considered for admission:

- must hold bachelor's degree in any field from an accredited college or university, and complete the prerequisites for regular graduate admission.

- must have completed a minimum of 90 semester hours of prerequisite and elective work.

*The academic program for students in both categories is identical in its entirety.
