Notification of Acceptance
As enrollment spaces are determined, applicants scheduled for enrollment will receive an Enrollment Invitation email. The email will provide instructions for providing a response to the invitation by an established deadline.
Those who have accepted the invitation to enroll will receive an email indicating acceptance into the program and further instructions for registration for classes. If the applicant, when offered enrollment, is not able
to attend, they will be removed from the applicant pool and the applicant will need to re-apply to be considered for a subsequent class. Students who are not selected for the cohort also have the option of re-applying for a subsequent class.
All application placements are based on space availability.
