    Hi everyone,

    I submitted my application about 3 weeks ago and never received a confirmation email or anything but all the payments went through. Did anyone else receive any notice? Or do you think we will receive a notice after the deadline, Jan 15th?

    Also, does anyone know how the financial aid is supposed to work? Because I'm currently a student at a different university, I have already submitted FAFSA for 2017/2018 year. The FAFSA for 2018/2019 year will not be disbursed until August? Anyone know about this?

    Thanks!

    You can call the main number to ask and someone will check to make sure they have everything needed while you are on the phone. Otherwise I think you are only contacted if they are missing something.

    Hi all!

    I have just finished applying for the program and I am now just waiting to hear back! I got a 94.5% on my HESI, my last 60 GPA is 3.77 and my prerequisite GPA is 4.0. I am hoping someone might have some insight on my chances (I am so anxious to get into this program). In addition, can anyone tell me about the interview process and possible questions?

    Thanks guys!

    They're having a problem with their system. I would just email them to make sure your application was submitted

    Does anyone happen to know the schedule for those that would be starting in May 2018? It looks like classes would start May 14, but are there any breaks between then and Thanksgiving? I thought I saw there was like a week off in August but unsure. I know it follows the standard school calendar but there are different stop dates in August (before the start date for everyone) depending what summer session you look at.
    I graduated this August. We had a little bit over a week off between summer and fall semester. Just look at the academic calendar for the dates. You also get a month off after Fall semester.

    Thanks for the information! I knew about the winter break (and spring break) but was just unsure about August. Do you have any insight about the program to add? Are you happy with your experience overall? Were you in Phoenix or Tuscon?

    Do any current students know if there's a beard policy for this program?

    Thanks,

    Google is your friend; here is the link to their handbook. It will have grooming / uniform standards.

    I think if you look back at the 2017 thread (maybe 2016) there were people who posted about apartments in Phoenix. It may be helpful.

    Does anyone have any idea when we may hear about interviews? It seems like last year it took about 2 weeks to hear back. Crossing my fingers and trying to wait patiently!

    Sorry, *3* weeks to hear back it looks like.

    Those of you that are out of state, how will you go about obtaining fingerprint clearance if offered an interview? Is there a specific number we need to call to receive an application to take to our local police department?
