application files with final documentsIn a few very specific circumstances, applicants are admitted without submitting final official documents.

Maybe they were in the process of finishing their degree and submitted “in-progress” transcripts. Perhaps their department granted an exception and reviewed their file with unofficial test scores. Whatever the reason, before beginning a degree program, applicants must submit final, official documents.

This isn’t just our rule, it’s a federal one.

All students must submit final documents, but if you receive federal aid, this rule has additional meaning. Federal law requires students to submit complete application records prior to receiving federal loan disbursements. If your application file is incomplete as determined by Bloomberg School admissions standards at the time of a disbursement, a hold will be placed on your financial aid disbursement until the School receives all required documents.

How do you know if your application is complete?

  1. Students admitted to the 2014-2015 academic year should log in to their online application.
  2. Look under "Other Supporting Documents."
  3. If you see “Not Received” it means you need to submit a final transcript, official transcript or official credentials evaluation.
