Deadlines and decisions

The Admissions Appeals Committee meets monthly between December and May and may refer appeals to the appropriate college for review.

Fall term decision appeals must be postmarked by April 1. Applicants receiving their admission letter after March 17 must have their appeal submitted within two weeks from the date on their admission decision letter. First Year applicants appealing in April may not be notified of appeal decisions until after the May 1 Intent to Enroll deadline; therefore you should not postpone accepting an offer of admission from another college or university.

Spring term decision appeals must be postmarked by November 15. Applicants receiving their admission letter after November 1 must have their appeal postmarked within two weeks from the date on their admission decision letter.
