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. The admissions process is highly selective and applicants are encouraged to apply early in the cycle. Typically a class is filled by mid-April but applications are accepted until June 1st. Matriculation into the Cardiovascular Science Program occurs during the academic year until the class has been filled. 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 the Cardiovascular Science Program 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 the Cardiovascular Science Program and the Dean. The Dean, via Office of Admissions, notifies applicants in writing of the admission action/decision. Decisions on acceptance are made until the maximum enrollment for each class is reached.
