Recency of education

Students must show successful completion of prerequisite coursework, or evidence of relevant professional experience, within the past five years. If the student needs to complete additional coursework in order to meet "recency of education" requirements, the actual requirements will be determined on an individual basis following discussion between the program director and potential applicant. Completion of recommended requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the program.
