    Only those applicants who have a four-year degree or equivalent and have an average of at least 70% in the last two years of full-time study can be considered for admission. There are a limited number of places available each year. Admission to the program is competitive and meeting the minimum criteria will not guarantee admission. Students may be considered for admission with any of the following academic backgrounds: ▪ A four-year degree, or its equivalent, with an average of at least 70% in the last two years of full-time study, as noted above; ▪ A three-year Bachelor's degree in an academic discipline, with an average of at least 70% in the last ten courses taken, and completion of a Bachelor of Education degree; ▪ A three-year Bachelor's degree in an academic discipline, with appropriate additional course work at this or another accredited university as a special undergraduate student for the equivalent of a four-year degree. This work would ordinarily consist of five full, academic degree credit courses, usually (but not necessarily) in the student's previous area of specialization. Students who complete these courses and maintain an average of at least 70% over their last ten full courses may apply for admission; ▪ A four-year degree or equivalent, with an average of at least 70%, and completion of a graduate degree in another academic discipline, with an average of at least 70%.
