Incomplete Applicants

Applying to college is a candidate-managed process and it is the student's responsibility to ensure that materials are received at the Office of Admissions in accordance with applicable deadlines. We are unable to process incomplete applications and thus encourage students to take a proactive approach throughout: be certain to regularly check your myStatus page to confirm material receipt, and follow up with appropriate parties if materials do not appear as having been received.

Note that we do have a material receipt grace period for late-arriving required materials to accommodate last minute applications. Beyond this date, however, we are not able to process late-arriving materials as we will need to begin evaluating applications that were completed on time.

Be certain to pay careful attention to your myStatus page, and monitor your email as well. We send regular communication to incomplete applicants.

Please note that incomplete Early Action applicants whose decisions were deferred are at no disadvantage in the evaluation process. However, deferred EA applicants MUST SUBMIT the essays required in Regular Decision to complete their applications.
