    Once the pre-requisites are verified, an e-mail will be sent listing which currently enrolled or planned courses are being used to fulfill requirements. Do not withdraw from any of the courses listed or you will jeopardize your admission. File then enters the review process.

File is placed on hold with the anticipation of reviewing again after fall grades or other requested information is received. Students should submit any new relevant information which can be taken into consideration when file is reviewed later in the cycle. Some students are placed on hold even if there is no anticipated new information and will be reviewed again in early spring.

Students placed on hold will be re-reviewed in late spring and all decision letters will be mailed before April 1.
