Step 2: Submit online application
On your online application, you will need to provide information on previous courses you have completed in the Academic History portion.
IMPORTANT: The initial admission review is based on your self-reported information, so it is crucial that all course information is inputted accurately. To do so, we advise that you have a copy of your unofficial transcripts while completing the application. If you skip this step, your application may be denied.
