Be aware of application deadlines. If you are required to take an English language proficiency test, please make sure you do so well before your application is due. Similarly, if you are required to have your academic records evaluated, we strongly encourage you to start this process as early as possible. It can be a lengthy process and in most cases, your application WILL NOT be reviewed without evaluated international academic records. All application requirements are due by the application deadline. Your application will not be reviewed until all materials are received and may be withdrawn if still incomplete after the application deadline.
