How to Apply
Before applying for admission we strongly encourage you to attend an Admissions Workshop. This workshop will allow you to find out more about our programs and the application process. We find that students get a more complete picture of our program by hearing from and speaking to an admissions representative. We want you to leave the workshop confident that CWE is the right program for you - before you apply.
