How does a student choose a pathway?

Is there a limit to the number of students who can enroll in each pathway?

Due to the limited amount of physical space in the building and to keep a balanced course enrollment at the school, there will be a limit to the number of students that can be accepted into each pathway.  Because students will be applying to individual pathways, there may be greater competition for acceptance into some pathways than others.

Can a student change their pathway once they have started?

Because industry credentials and certifications will be a major focus of each pathway, changing pathways midway through the program may make it difficult to complete the requirements for the certifications associated with the new pathway.  With this in mind, changes to pathways are discouraged, but may be allowed early in the process (freshman or sophomore year), if space is available in desired pathway.
