*ASE will consider applicants with 3.30-3.49 GPAs as part of a holistic review. Applicants will be contacted with further instructions after the application deadline.

†FST is intended for students who have prior experience in fire service. FST will consider applicants with GPAs below 2.0 who submit a letter of support from their chief/captain.

‡MET will consider course persistence as part of a holistic review. Applicants who are on-track with the curriculum will be prioritized over students with higher GPAs who have withdrawn from required courses.
