What does “conditional” and “provisional” status mean?
A provisional student is one who does not fulfill the academic requirements for admission as a degree candidate, but if they complete specific prerequisite coursework and/or take a specific number of courses and complete them successfully, they can later be admitted as a degree student. The Admissions Committee determines which applicants are provisional. This information is expressed in the admission letter.
Can I just take courses? What if I don’t want a degree?
Is the immunization form required with the application or can I submit it after I have been reviewed?
The immunization form is required for those under age 26, unless you meet the waiver criteria. The immunization form is not a part of the admissions process. Instead, it is required prior to registration for the first class. If a student is under the age of 26, in a fully online program, and does not live in the region surrounding Washington, DC they should use the Immunization Waiver Form.
