A new class is admitted each semester in Fall, Spring and Summer. Class sizes are limited to promote extensive interaction with instructors and classmates to optimize the learning experience.
Transfer students may also be admitted at the beginning of any semester if they demonstrate adequate knowledge and skill to merge with the existing class through transfer credit, challenge examination, or favorable assessment by the Dean of AOM.
