January-April of the Year Prior to Admission:

May and June

  • Initiate your centralized application using a professional sounding email account.

  • Request that official transcripts be sent to the centralized application service.
  • Submit your application to the application service and print two copies including your designated school list. (one for our office, one for your records)
  • Maintain a tracking system for managing primary and secondary applications, checks, and status of your application
  • Turn in a copy of your submitted official application and school list to Jennifer in Bailey Hall 101. Include a one page formal update letter if your committee review was done before the current year.
  • Complete and return all secondary applications you receive from schools within a two week time frame.

Committee letters will be sent to schools on a rolling basis - earlier is better.  Note: successful applicants typically complete their primary application by mid-June and their secondary applications by August. Do not wait until the fall term - this is when you could be interviewing!
