Selection Process

Birthwise does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, ethnic origin, age or physical ability.

Our selection process takes place in February and April after the application deadlines and involves reading and evaluating all application materials (application, essay, reference letters, and transcripts), interviewing applicants, and choosing the applicants that seem most promising and appropriate for our midwifery program.  The applicant may be accepted, denied or placed on a waitlist.  As accepted applicants enroll in the program by the end of May, we may find we have extra space in the class and will offer those spots to our waitlisted applicants.


* Official transcripts need to sent directly to you or to the school in a sealed envelope.

Birthwise does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, ethnic origin, nationality, age, or physical ability.
