If those prerequisites will be time-consuming, we may advise you to wait until the following semester to begin your studies at St. Lawrence. Note that if you apply for a regular program instead of the DEC Pathway but you are missing prerequisites, we will contact you about the possibility of being accepted into the DEC Pathway.
There will be some similarities and some differences, partly depending on where you studied.
