Application Status

Info Announcement

If you have submitted your fall 2015 freshman application by our deadlines of November 10 (early action) or January 15 (regular decision), you have met our requirement for consideration for fall admission. The Office of Admissions receives more than 300,000 documents each year and it takes us a while to match all of them to your application. Due to the incredible volume of documents this time of year, it can take anywhere from two to four weeks to process documents once they reach the office.

We appreciate your patience as you allow our staff to give your application the individual attention it deserves. If we find that we have been unable to match your transcript or test scores to your application, we’ll contact you and give you ample time to provide them without penalty. Please DO NOT send duplicate documents. This unnecessarily adds to our volume and creates more work for your high school guidance staff.

All Early Action applicants will be notified of their admission decision starting December 15 via U.S. mail. All regular decision applicants will be notified by April 1 via U.S. mail.

Transfer Applicants

Fall transfer admission decisions begin to mail on April 1. Spring transfer admission decisions begin to mail on November 1. Decision letters will continue to mail as applications become complete and space remains in the transfer class. Decisions are sent via the U.S. Postal Service to the permanent mailing address provided by the applicant.
