A maximum of twelve students can be accepted into the program per year. Screening of applicants begins in May, and acceptances are issued in June of each year for admission in Fall of the following academic year. Applications will be accepted until all openings are filled.  Traditionally students commence the program with the Fall semester, although some students have been admitted to begin with the Spring semester. Once the Certificate Program is begun, each student has five years to complete the courses in the program; continuous enrollment is not required. Courses are traditionally scheduled in the afternoon and evening hours in an effort to accommodate employed students.
