How and when will I know if my application is accepted?
Acceptance is a two-part process. Your application is first reviewed by a departmental committee and, if successful, by the College of Graduate Studies and Research. The department generally reviews applications on a seasonal basis (see deadlines above) and forwards positive recommendations to CGSR. The student is then notified of acceptance by CGSR. Most correspondence is online, but some items may be mailed. If you move, or change your e-mail address, please supply the department email@example.com with a change of address notification.
