What Happens Next?

 The Admissions Committee will review all applicants and determine dates for interviews. Students should be notified by the end of February through their MU student email of their individual interview dates and times.

The goal of the Committee is to notify all applicants of acceptance status before advising week begins in March. Students who are conditionally accepted will attend an orientation session at the end of the spring semester where they will be given instructions regarding immunizations, complete background checks, CPR requirements, and health forms.
