Students with concerns about their academic performance may also use this form to demonstrate improved performance in the current semester. Please DOWNLOAD the form to send to your faculty. The form can be completed in-person or electronically. If you have difficulty uploading the form to your application, you can email it directly to Jennifer Gonder
  6. You will be notified whether you have been accepted two weeks after the application deadline. Please note: you should be advised by your current academic department and register for classes as advised while awaiting admissions notification.
