    If applicants do not successfully complete the admissions test on the first attempt, they are invited to retest. If the admissions test is not successfully completed a second time, applicants are not

Exceptions to these requirements are occasionally permitted. An applicant may petition the director of the Degree Completion program he or she is interested in joining, and an ad-hoc committee consisting of the Director of the Division, the Director of the program, the Academic Advisory, and the Admissions Counselor will review all submitted material and will render a final decision.
