Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis. The Admission Committee begins its evaluation of files in December of the year before admission, with the majority of decisions made in the period from mid-January to early April. Every applicant will receive notification as to the status of the application (accept, hold, deny) shortly after the initial review by the Admission Committee.
Those applicants who are placed on hold by the Committee will be reconsidered in the late spring or early summer after more information is available on the entire group of applicants. The most promising applicants remaining on hold after admission decisions are completed in the spring will be placed on a wait list and kept informed of their status over the summer months.
Admitted students will be required to reserve his or her place in the entering class with two tuition seat deposits, which is applied toward tuition for the first semester. The deadlines will be stated on the letter of admission. Failure to meet the deadlines will result in admission revocation. The first seat deposit (for the fall term) is due by April 15 or by the stated date in your offer of admission. The second tuition deposit is due by June 2. Both deposits are non refundable. Admitted students are also required to submit two official degree showing transcripts. More information on the requirements will be given at the time of admission.
A mandatory first year orientation will take place just prior to the first week of classes.
