Application Considerations

  • Change of College (COC) applicants must have 24 UC credit hours completed or in-progress at time of application; transfer credit will not fulfill this requirement
  • Meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee admission; other factors are considered (i.e. academic misconduct or program capacity)
  • Transition plan and timeline to co-op and/or graduation will be determined after acceptance; program may require up to five additional years of study
