Important Update Related to COVID-19

  • Due to on campus limitations due to COVID-19, we strongly encourage applicants to submit official electronic versions of application materials when possible via email to [email protected].
  • If necessary, we will temporarily accept unofficial transcripts. Official transcripts must be provided before enrollment.
  • If you have any issues submitting any of the required admission materials, please reach out directly to your admission counselor. We are working to be as flexible as possible during this difficult time.
