Selections are based on your cumulative grade point average plus bonus points earned. Bonus points can be awarded based on the following criteria:

  • Completion of degree-specific general education courses with a C or higher prior to applying. Science courses must have been completed within 5 years of program deadline date.
  • Completion of college level courses with a C or higher from a regionally accredited college or university. Points are awarded proportionately to the number of semester hours completed.
