Additional Admission Requirements

Situational Judgement Test: CASPer
Applicants will be required to complete an online situational judgement test, which assesses for non-cognitive skills and interpersonal characteristics that we believe are important for successful students and graduates of our program and will complement the other tools that we use for applicant screening (i.e., GPA).

Check back for CASPer test dates to be considered admissible for the Fall 2023 intake.
