Candidates are notified in writing by the Admissions Coordinator that their files have been received and is complete. It is the responsibility of the SUPT admissions chairman to determine prerequisite substitutions and to evaluate prerequisites in question (e.g. those with atypical names), however in no cases will prerequisites be waived. This process of prerequisite substitution typically involves asking the candidate to provide a course description or syllabus to support their claim. For science prerequisites that are older than 10 years, a candidate may request to substitute work experience or graduate-level course work. The process is outlined in the admissions guidelines.
