Receiving Your Documents

Once our office receives your application and admission requirements, we will communicate the status of your application with you through email. Students may also check the status of their applications by logging into their Self Service Center. Additionally, once a decision is made our office will prepare and send you additional documents. The types of documents you receive and how you receive them will vary depending on the type of admission decision you receive.

Regular Admissions Decision

A regular admissions decision will be made 4-6 business days after receiving your complete online application form and all other required documents. You will receive the full admission packet including your acceptance letter, I-20 and scholarship documents (if eligible). Your SEVIS number may be included in your admissions email to allow you to begin scheduling your visa interviews.

Conditional Admission Decision

A conditional admission decision may be made 4-6 business days after receiving your complete online application form and all other required documents, except proof of English Proficiency (TOEFL/IELTS). You will only receive the Conditional Acceptance Letter via email and mail (if needed) and no I-20 will be issued.

Provisional Admission Decision

A provisional admission decision may be made 4-6 business days after receiving your complete online application form and academic credentials, such as transcript and proof of graduation. You will only receive the Provisional Acceptance Letter via email. No I-20 or letter will be issued for mailing.
