Leadership & Career Studies Eligibility Criteria

The Admissions Committee will review your application and determine your eligibility for the program. If you are determined to be eligible for the program, you will be scheduled for an interview. You will be interviewed by the interview team in person by yourself. After your personal interview, the interview team will meet with family members or support persons to answer any questions about Leadership & Career Studies (L&CS).

Students will be selected for admission after all interviews are completed. Please do not call about the status of your application, as we will not be able to provide this information for you over the phone. You will be notified of your acceptance status by April 3, 2023.

Note: Due to space limitations, not all applicants who complete the application and meet the criteria for admission can be accepted to L&CS.
