Certain college courses are classified as Restricted-Application Courses.
These are courses that have early assessment procedures as part of getting into the course, such as an interview, or a portfolio assessment.
Because the assessment may take place as early as February in the year you are applying, these courses cannot be applied for after February 1st, either by a Late Application, or by a Change of Mind*.
CAO applications for a Restricted-Application Course will only be considered if:
a. It has been included among your original course choices by the 1st February
b. It has been added to your existing application not later than the final date for correction of errors or omissions - normally 1st March (see CAO Handbook pages 15 and 27).
Exception*: If a restricted course shares the exact same assessment procedures with a course you had applied for by 1st February (fulfilling conditions a) or b) above), you may be permitted to introduce it on a Change of Mind. You should consult with the relevant HEI before introducing such a course.
CAO applicants should receive their Statement of Course Choices by 15th February. It is the applicants responsibility to ensure that any Restricted-Application Course they had listed in their application is present and correct by 1st March.
Restricted-Application Courses which are included in Late Applications are invalid choices and will not be considered.
The early assessment procedures for Restricted Application Courses usually take place around Easter. Students are advised to check the relevant course details.
