Once admitted to a MSN track, a student is committed to that track. Should the student wish to change or transfer to a different track than which he/she was originally admitted, the student is required to reapply for admission to the track to which the student wants during the next application cycle. The MSN tracks are very competitive and there is no guarantee a current student will be automatically accepted to a different track through the re-admission process.
