Our application opens in CASAA mid-April of every year for admission to start the following fall semester. We start interviews in the late summer.
We interview throughout the cycle and close the application portal when we have filled the class.
Yes. The prerequisite courses need to be completed by the time you start the Program, not by the time you apply. HOWEVER, if you have more than 3 outstanding prerequisite courses at the time of application, contact the Program Office for further advisement. If you have more than 4 outstanding prerequisite courses, we would encourage you to wait until the next cycle as it makes it extremely difficult for the Admissions Committee to evaluate you alongside applicants who have completed more of the prerequisite courses.
All materials should be submitted to and through CASAA. We require official test scores to be sent to CASAA by the testing agency; official transcripts should be sent by your Registrar to CASAA.
No. You will send your official transcripts to CASAA.
No. We are looking for students who have a GPA of 3.0 or above and test scores around the 50th percentile. However, we review applications holistically, so there are opportunities for various parts of your application to compensate for weaker components.
No. Due to the sequencing of our courses, the rigorous curriculum, and the heavy clinical aspect of the Program, there are no online or part-time options.
Given the rigorous nature of the Program, students are strongly discouraged from working while they are enrolled.
Yes, you can use AP credits to count for up to 3 prerequisite courses.
We do not accept credits from previous courses or credit for experiential learning. All students are required to complete 100% of the MSA curriculum offered by the University of Colorado.
