SleuthI love a good mystery. Sherlock Holmes, Maisie Dobbs, Hercule Poirot are all dear friends of mine.  They’re also my competitors, because my favorite thing about mysteries is trying to solve the puzzle before the hero (or heroine).

So imagine the pleasure I get by solving this mystery for you. . .

I submitted all the required materials. I see them applied to my online application. My application is under review, so why is it still “incomplete?”

This seemingly contradictory notation generally appears in applications of those currently completing coursework or a degree. Your school likely sent us an “in progress” transcript showing your coursework to date.

While this “in progress” transcript is typically sufficient for our admissions review, it will not fulfill the University’s final transcript requirement.  If you are admitted and before you begin classes at the School of Public Health, you will need to provide an official final transcript showing your newly completed courses and the grades you earned.

As long as the individual requirements (letters of recommendation, test scores, transcripts, etc.) have been fulfilled and your application is under review, there is nothing more to do until you receive your decision.

One final, important note in the solving of this mystery: admitted students who do not provide final documentation may not be able to register for classes or receive federal funding.  

That sounds scary, but if you pay attention to communication from us, monitor your online application and follow this blog, it’s elementary!
