Cohorts

Western offers some programs in a "cohort model" and reviews prospective students for admission based on criteria for each program. A cohort is simply a group of students who go through a degree program simultaneously from start to finish. In addition, cohort delivery requires that students agree to attend classes based on the proposed schedule in order to maintain continuous enrollment throughout the program.
