Admissions Decisions

Once you have submitted your application and all other supplemental forms by the December 15 deadline, our admissions committees will begin reviewing all applications and begin making decisions and notifications by March. The selection committees make admissions decisions after careful deliberations. Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications, we cannot offer individual feedback to individuals denied admission. All decisions made by the selection committees are final.

Notification of our admission decisions are made via email and U. S. mail. Applicants may log in to their Application Supplemental Forms to check the status of their application at any time. If applicants need assistance logging in, they should contact our Doctoral Programs office. Admissions decisions will not be released via telephone or in person.

We thank you for your interest in our program and wish you the best of luck in your future academic endeavors.
