The Day After the Deadline

Our office will open this morning for the first time since deadline. Inevitably, there will be a mountain of mail to process (and plenty more arriving for the next two weeks), the front desk will be overwhelmed with calls, and there will be hundreds of emails in the general account to answer.

Please do not call to confirm receipt of materials.  Even if a supporting document was sent weeks ago, if you just submitted your application over the weekend, it is going to take time for the items to meet up in our system.  You need to give us time to process everything and they you can check your status page in SIS (SIS login info is emailed within 5 days of application submission).  I will let you know what we have the bulk of the processing done.

Do not worry about your status pages at this time.

We always contact students with incomplete applications who don't check their SIS accounts (we can see the last date that you logged into SIS). This will happen at the end of January or beginning of February.
