After You Apply
You’ve applied and submitted your application. Now what?
You can check your status online at any time. This will show you a checklist of all your items and if they’re all correct and complete.
The time that it takes for an application to go through the review process varies.
After we complete our review of your application, we communicate the recommendations and denials to Admissions and they update the official record. We do this throughout the application cycle.
When you'll hear from us
You’ll receive a decision by email or mail within the time frames below.
First year applicants:
Spring term: September–December
Fall term: February–May
After a decision has been made
Once Admissions enters a decision, the application portal is updated and an official decision letter is mailed.
