Admission and Tailored Tuition Notification

Admission and tailored tuition applications completed by Jan. 24 will receive notification on or about Feb. 9. We will continue to accept applications for both after this date. Notification for applications received after Jan. 24 will be given as soon as possible, but priority will be given to those completed by Jan. 24. Those admitted after a class fills will be placed in an admissions wait pool. Those applying for tailored tuition after funds have been exhausted will be placed in a tailored tuition wait pool. Please note that applicants cannot receive tailored tuition notification until they have completed the application process. Both should be completed concurrently.
