Application processing does not begin until after November 1st each year. If you applied between August and November 1st, you should wait until after November 15th to inquire about your status.
After November 1st, students can expect to hear from OIE approximately 2.5 weeks from the date that the application was completed. OIE will send, to the e-mail provided in your application, an e-mail message informing you of your status. Applications of students with disciplinary files with the Office of Student Affairs may take longer than 2.5 weeks to be processed. Since the Program Director must review and decide on each application, this period of time is approximate. Decisions may take longer than 2.5 weeks based on interviews or other additional criteria by individual Programs, the Program Director or OIE.
All accepted students are required to submit the Assumption of Risk and Release form to OIE. Your Program Director will require you to turn in additional forms specific to your program.
You should contact your Program Director to find out about any visa requirements for your program.
