  • 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.
  • ME and 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 Applicants who are on-track with the curriculum will be prioritized over students with higher GPAs who have withdrawn from required courses.
