How to Apply

The school offers an Early Notification process for enrollment in the fall semester. This provides applicants the opportunity to receive an admissions decision by December 21 for enrollment in the following fall semester. Through the Early Notification process, the Admissions Committee will either make an offer of admission or defer the application for consideration during the regular application process. If deferred, the applicant will be notified of an admission decision in mid-March. Early Notification is not binding.

Please note: For your application to be considered for Early Notification, please ensure that all supporting documents (as listed in the application instructions) are received by the Office of Admissions no later than November 1.  If any supporting documents are received after November 1, the application will be reviewed during the Regular Deadline process.
