Possible admissions decisions are as follows:

  • Interview invitation

All decisions of the Admissions Committee are final.


The Admissions Committee conducts a very limited number of interviews for the Advanced Professional Certificate program. Interviews are available by invitation only. The majority of Advanced Professional Certificate program admission decisions are made without an interview.

If the Admissions Committee invites you to interview, you will receive the invitation and scheduling information via email.

The interview is evaluative and provides the Admissions Committee with more information on your qualifications. After the interview, it typically will take up to three weeks to receive a decision.
