Screening of applicants begins in the December preceding the academic year of enrollment.

Offers of admission into the program are generally made shortly after the interviews are complete.
Acceptance of the offer of admission into the program by the applicant is expected no later than April 15. Late applications are considered on a space available basis.
The first academic year generally begins in the third week of August.
