The selection process includes the following steps:

1. Review of Applications - October - February

The OVC admissions committee reviews the applications of U.S. and international applicants and ranks them based on the student's overall academic performance, the letters of reference provided, the student's background preparation, and their personal statements. Once the candidates for interview are chosen, the interview is the predominant deciding factor.

2. Interview - November - April

Candidates will be invited to a 30-minute interview where they will meet two faculty members of the OVC Admissions Committee.

3. Communication of decision

Admission status is posted on the applicant's WebAdvisor account and an email 'offer' is sent to accepted candidates within a week of the interview.

Offers of admission must be accepted in writing.
