The international student application process requires additional time
to complete, so we prefer to have all forms and documents in the Admissions

January). We will, however, continue to admit
international students as long as class space is available.
All documents are mailed to students via
United States Postal Service. Students wishing to receive
correspondence via express mail are welcome to establish an
account with University
Express Mail Services.
