In addition, these programs have a separate admissions application and several admissions requirements that must be met by a publicized application deadline. Advisors in those programs are available to answer questions and assist students in understanding these requirements; however, responsibility for meeting all admissions requirements for these programs is the sole responsibility of the student.
