Answer: No, it is “first come, first serve”. We take 16 students full time,  each year, this is a combination of students enrolled in the Intermediate Technical Certificate, and the Associates of Applied Science degree.  The best way to assure your seat is to get your application form in completed as soon as possible. For example, if you complete all three prerequisite classes in the Fall semester, you can turn them in as soon as you have all your requirements listed on the application form completed in December or January.

If you are enrolled in the summer semester prerequisite classes, you may meet with the program coordinator and turn in the application form after mid-terms, and then complete any documentation before the fall semester starts.


Question: If I complete everything in the fall semester, can I start in the spring semester?

Answer: No, however there maybe one or two classes you could take, you would need to meet with the program coordinator to discuss this.
