Your "To Do" List

Oftentimes, applications are submitted but there are still additional materials required before a decision can be made.  These items include transcripts, test scores, application fees and more. You can find a list of any outstanding items in the right column in the section labeled "To Do List".  This section may also be used in the future for tracking financial aid and other documents required as a student.
