  • Applicants can request for elimination of their first program of study if there is a five year gap between last registration and the beginning of registration in their second program of study. To be eligible for this request, the coursework completed in the first program of study cannot be used towards fulfilling degree requirements. Applicants will be required to submit a letter from the degree granting faculty confirming the courses used towards fulfilling degree requirements.
