Hi All, 

Thought I would get a topic started for this app cycle!

 

I had a question about the CDU English requirement. I have emailed them and left a voicemail, but I haven't heard a response. 

At UCSD I completed a 5 course series in Humanities (2 are 6 unit courses, 3 are 4 unit courses) which fulfilled our writing requirement. There is also no formal English department, though there is a Literature department. 

Western University in Pomona, CA accepts Humanities in place of their English requirement, so I'm wondering if CDU has a similar policy. 

Any help or information is appreciated!

Hi,

I was reviewing the CDU PA website prior to applying. I believe CDU will not accept humanities courses in place of their English Composition. Check out the FAQ's I had the same question. I have one course ENG 101 that based on CDU's guidelines would fulfill the prerequisite.

Does anyone know if the biology prerequisite has to be a full year sequence?

@VVTVV, I don't think the 8 units of bio needs to be a full year sequence. I'm under the impression the requirement can equally be fulfilled by a General Bio course plus an upper division course, similar to their General Chemistry 8 unit requirement: Organic or Biochemistry: upper level chemistry courses with lab are preferred and count toward total general chemistry requirement of 8 units

Hi everyone! Is there a supplemental app?

@MedIsLifePA, there is no supplemental application. See their FAQ on their website for this and more info.

For this program, do all prerequisites need to be done by May 30th of this year or next year? When does this program start?

@roadtomed, If you are applying this application cycle to start August 2021, your prerequisites must be completed by May 30, 2021. However, you cannot have more than 2 outstanding prerequisites when you submit your application.

Hi,

  When I called CDU a while ago, they said that they also accept AP credit as long as the units are listed on the official transcript!

This is good to know!! I have AP credits that I can use, then! Thank You.

Does anyone know when interview invites will be sent out? Wasn't sure if CDU is rolling admissions or not.

I believe they are on rolling admission. Just got an email that said they received my application!

Just basing it off last year’s cycle, somewhere between end of August and end of September.

I submitted 6/3 and CASPA verified 6/9 but I still haven't received anything about my application from CDU. 

Did you check your junk/spam folder? I applied on the 6th, verified on the 11th and received the CDU verification email today

Just submitted my application tonight but I just realized I put the wrong zip code for my high school in the program specific questions 😖. Arghh I am just so used to typing my current zip code and it is similar to my hs zip code, idk why I didn't double check.

Update: CASPA told me to contact the school so I just emailed them the correct info 😅

@Mmram awww yeah I never knew my high school zipcode had to google them 

CASPA verified: 7/2/2020 I did my July and August deadline school first then hit my September school so that's why

CASPA submitted: 7/8/2020

Waiting to hear back if it's received from CDU themselves. Fingers crossed good luck everyone!

hi! I submitted June 27th and was verified today July 13. My transcripts did not arrive until July 6 and July 8th. I would say the turnaround time for verification was pretty quick! and CDU verified me today!

I looked at the forum for last year 19/20 cycle and the first time someone mentioned that they received an interview invite was on 9/26/2019 and many people were also responding saying they were offered interview slots for the day of 10/18/2019! Hope that gives you some ideas on when to expect it. Someone else also mentioned last year they had a new director so things were changing. Good luck 🙂
