Selection of candidates is based on review of the paper application and an interview.
Applications are initially reviewed to determine whether they meet the required criteria;
admission to UAA, completion of all prerequisite courses with a 'C' or better, and
a cumulative in the prerequisite courses of 2.5 or above. If an applicant does not
fulfill these three requirements, they will not be considered for full-major acceptance
for that year. Furthermore, if any section of the application is not complete or omitted,
the application will be considered incomplete and will not be reviewed.
The application and all it's components are graded using a point system. Information
from the applicants prerequisie GPA, performance in individual prerequisite courses,
essays, and recommendations will be used. Top tier candidates are offered an interview.
