letters of reference
Three letters of reference are required. These must be written within three years of the application date, and must support the applicant's ability to meet the Criteria for Admission. Please include name, relationship to you and contact information for each of your references below. At least two of these letters should be professional or academic; AMI diploma holders are encouraged to contact their former trainer(s) for letters of reference.
Letters can be requested by email via this step of this application. Be prepared to follow up with your references to ensure they complete and submit your letters.
The educational standard for the course is a Bachelor's degree with a GPA of 2.75 or above. Exceptions will be considered on an individual basis. Applicants without a Bachelor's degree or with a GPA below 2.75 may be offered conditional acceptance.
Official transcripts from each educational institution you've attended are required. Applicants who hold degrees outside of the United States must have a course evaluation and translation of their academic records completed by an approved evaluation services agency (such as World Education Services, www.wes.org) to be considered for admission.
