Notification & Process

Check the Status of Your Application
You can check the status of your application at any time on your application status page. Your application status page indicates any missing application requirements, and you are able to upload outstanding or supplemental materials directly to this page. 

  • You will receive an email confirmation once you have submitted your application. Your application will not be processed until your application fee has been received.
  • Initial notifications will begin shortly after the first application deadline and continue on an ongoing basis.

Initial Notification
If your application was complete by the deadline, you will receive an initial notification no later than the initial notification date for that deadline. 

Initial Notification possibilities are as follows:

  • Interview invitation
  • Waitlist offer
  • Denial of admission

For all programs, please note that you may be placed on the waitlist or denied admission without being interviewed.

Interviews and Post-Interview Decision
Interviews are available by invitation only. You will be able to schedule your interview via your application status page. Interviews are conducted by our trained admissions professionals, who will have thoroughly read your entire application. At this time, all interviews are being conducted virtually.

Post-Interview Decision
After the interview, it will typically take up to three weeks to receive a post-interview decision. There are three possible post-interview decisions:

  • Offer of admission
  • Waitlist offer
  • Denial of admission

Offer of Admission
If offered admission, you will view an online admission letter on your application status page. If you have been awarded any scholarships, that information will be part of your admission letter. In addition, you will be given access to our Admitted Student Website.
Waitlist Offer
In our admissions process, you may be placed on the waitlist without being interviewed and/or after being interviewed. If you are placed on the waitlist, you will receive additional information about the waitlist process at that time. 

All decisions made by the Admissions Committee are final.
