The Cardiovascular Science Program currently uses a rolling admissions process. Completed applications are reviewed and decisions are made at regular intervals during the admissions cycle. Matriculation into the Master of Cardiovascular Science degree program occurs during the Fall quarter. Admission to the Cardiovascular Science Program at Midwestern University is considered on a competitive basis for prospective students who hold a bachelor's level (or its equivalent) or higher degree from regionally accredited college or university. Applications received are reviewed by the Office of Admissions for completeness and referred to the Director of Cardiovascular Science to determine eligibility for applicant interviews. Final acceptance into the Cardiovascular Science Program is determined by the Admissions Committee with the approval of both the Director of Cardiovascular Science and the Dean. Decisions on acceptance are made until the maximum enrollment for each class is reached. Candidates are encouraged to submit a completed application early in the admission cycle.
