Note: Petition meetings include program-specific breakout sessions that are typically two-hours in length (and may run longer). Any student considering petitioning more than one program for entry must attend a meeting for each program.
After meeting the minimum requirements, you are now eligible to petition. It is your responsibility to submit a completed Petition Form and all required petitioning documents during the designated petition period (stated on the Petition Form) in order to be considered for entry into the clinical program. Also, this process requires petitioning students to complete a Criminal Background Check.
As program entry is granted to only a designated number of students, the petitions are awarded points on the scorecard. Optionally, there are a number of additional factors that may be considered and awarded points for competitive entry for petitions. Some of these factors include: Completed General Education Courses need for Graduation, Other Completed College Degrees, Work Experience (using the Verification of Occupational Experience form), etc. More information will be available at the petition information meeting.
After you have submitted your petition request, expect to receive a letter in the mail (by the date specified on your petition application) with your results.
The letter will define your petition status as: Accepted, Not Accepted, Alternate, or Invalid.
If you are not selected, you will be required to complete the petition process again (including attendance at petition information meeting and submission of all forms) for future entry. Additionally, you are strongly encouraged to meet with a program counselor/admission specialist if not selected to discuss strategies to improve your petition score.
