The decision to admit applicants is based on an evaluation of the candidate's potential for success in the program. While professional experience is not a requirement, most applicants have some full-time work experience. All admission decisions are communicated in writing to students. When evidence regarding questionable character or personality appear in an applicant's materials, the college reserves the right to evaluate such factors as criteria of admission.
