Admissions Decisions

What you can expect from us.


Your Admissions Committee
  • The Admissions Committee includes professionals from both the admissions and the career management staff.

  • At least one member of the Admissions Committee reviews each file in its entirety before the candidate’s qualifications are discussed in a meeting in which the committee reaches consensus about admission and scholarship awards.

  • Students and alumni do not interview candidates, review applications or make admissions decisions, although they may provide valuable input about any candidate.

Admissions Decisions
  • All decisions are posted on the applicant’s secure MyOwen account.

  • We may convey initial decisions about admissions and scholarship awards by email or telephone. We also send official letters of admission by mail.

  • Applicants who have been denied or waitlisted will receive an official decision via email.

  • If an applicant is denied admission, the Admissions Committee will only provide feedback to re-applicants. Please do not ask for feedback prior to June.

  • All decisions of the Admissions Committee are final and applicants will be considered for admission only once in any academic year.
