Due to impaction, Admissions and Records requires a minimum of 3 months to review all applications once all transcripts are in their hands. Additionally, students who require financial aid should note that it will take another 2 months (or more) for monies to be awarded from time of acceptance into the program. Due to these constraints, we encourage all prospective students to apply by October 1, 2017 for Spring 2018 admittance. If you are unable to meet this suggested date, you might consider applying for Fall 2018
