The Cardiovascular Science Program currently uses a modified rolling admissions process. Completed applications are reviewed and decisions are made at regular intervals during the admissions cycle until the class is filled. The admissions process is highly selective and applicants are encouraged to apply within the priority or standard application deadlines in the cycle listed below.
Priority Application Deadline - October 1
Applicants who submit their completed materials on or before October 1 will be given first consideration for admissions and will be notified of a decision on their application on or before January 31. Those who are not accepted in the program at this time will be rolled over into the Standard Application Deadline.
Standard Application Deadline - March 1
Applicants who submit their completed application materials on or before March 1 will be considered for admissions and will be notified of a decision on their application on or before May 31. Students are encouraged to apply during the Priority or Standard Application Deadlines. Applications received between March 1 and May 31 will be considered on a rolling basis for seats that may be available or placement on the alternate list.
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 a 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.
