What needs to be complete by our program’s deadline date?

Applicants must have an application complete date on or before the deadline date. A complete date is given when an application is e-submitted and all transcripts, payments, and at least two letters of reference have been received by CASPA and attached to the application. Documents should be sent several weeks prior to this date to ensure items arrive on time.

Not sure if a particular course meets a requirement?

If you are not sure if a particular course meets one of the prerequisites, you may email the program at for clarification after a review of the FAQ page. Please include a course syllabi if available, or at a minimum a course description, so a determination can be made.

Please be advised that the program does not offer transcript evaluation services for applicants.
