Once we receive all required documentation the application will be evaluated. While it is difficult to estimate an exact time frame, the process will go by a lot more quickly if the student is diligent about submitting the necessary documents.
Application files are reviewed and decisions made on a rolling basis, meaning files are reviewed in the order completed and decisions are made at that time.
Depending on the time of year, decisions may take anywhere from a few days to several weeks from the date the application file is complete.
Meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission. Admissions decisions are selective and competitive. If a student does not meet our desired GPA and test score levels (see website) we may place them in a hold decision status.
This will give the student additional time to submit higher test scores or other information as described in our communication to them.
