    • Effective January 1, 2017, the total number of students placed into the program will be comprised of 50% from the current wait list and 50% random selection from remaining wait listed students regardless of the order of post mark for the application. Alternates will be assigned from the wait list.
    • Students who apply during the application window, May 1, 2016 – July 15, 2016 will be the last group of applicants who, if qualified, will be placed on the wait list.
    • Students currently on the wait list retain their wait list # based on post mark date of application. Students placed into the program are notified by January each year.
    • Effective for the application window, May 1, 2017 – July 15, 2017, qualified applicants will no longer be placed onto the wait list. This group of students will be placed into the program by random selection: 50% from wait list and 50% random selection. If not selected by random selection into the cohort that will start fall 2018, students may re-apply the following year.
    • After all students on the wait list have been offered placement into the program in accordance with the 50% wait list and 50% random selection method, 100% selection will be from annual application by random selection.
    • As of January 1, 2017, there will no longer be a process by which a one-time one year deferral may be granted once a student is placed into the program.
    • This revised selection process will be implemented starting January 1, 2017, one year after being announced and posted publicly.
