As a tech-forward institution, we use virtual assessment as part of our admissions process.
Completing the assessment is simple—you will be given 3 questions to answer in a set amount of time. One of your responses will be written, and two will be recorded via video. The whole process should only take 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
This allows the admissions team to get a sense of your personality and potential before proceeding to a possible interview.
You will need a computer with an internet connection, and a functioning webcam and microphone. The system allows for unlimited practice sessions before answering each of the 3 official questions, however, you only have one chance to record your official answers.
Shortly after submitting your application and paying your Admissions fee, you will receive an email with instructions.
