Application Status

The Graduate Programs admission committee reviews applications based on the date they are complete, and does so on a rolling basis. Applications are considered complete when the Graduate Programs Office has received all the required materials.

Usually, applicants will be notified of a decision within four weeks after the application file is considered complete, but that cannot always be guaranteed. The Graduate Programs Office corresponds with applicants primarily through email, and occasionally by regular mail.
