Helpful Hints for Submitting Your Application

  • DO NOT submit duplicate supporting documents. For example: If you email a supporting document, do not send the same document to us by regular mail.
  • Be prepared to submit your application in one sitting. There is not a way to save your application and come back to finish it later. Do not complete parts of the application and submit it hours later, your work may be lost and an error message may appear. Our system does updates throughout the day and evening and your application maybe reset. We recommend that you complete the personal statements and any other lengthy responses in a Word Document and save it to your computer.
  • No supporting documentation will be accepted after Friday, March 15, 2019. To ensure all of your documents are submitted on time, request your documents well in advance.
