We also post admission decisions and financial aid offers to your Where Am I in the Process? portal, so review the Terms of Service prior to applying. The Where Am I in the Process? service is intended for individuals at least 13 years old; if you intend to apply and are not at least 13, please contact the Office of Admission.
