Selection is based on successful completion of all petition requirements, residency priority and then the date your application was completed. Petition requirements may be in progress when you petition, but selection priority will be given to those who have all requirements completed.
- If the available spaces are not filled by candidates with all requirements completed, the petitioners with in-progress requirements may be tentatively awarded open spots.
- The tentatively awarded spots will become permanent only after you successfully complete the outstanding requirements.
Priority is given to district residents, then non-district state residents, followed by out of state residents. Out of state and non-district state residents (including Minnesota residents) are not eligible for program with application deadline prior to January 1 for Fall and/or May 1 for Spring.
You must petition during the specified petition dates. Do not petition if you have not completed or are in progress with all petition requirements. Run your Degree Progress Report to see which requirements you have completed.
You will be notified if you are selected for entry into core classes. If you are not selected, we encourage you to petition again during a future petition window. All selection decisions are final and may not be appealed.
