All REMS application materials must be postmarked by December 1. Applicants will be notified in February if they are being invited to interview for REMS. Interviews will take place during the last week of February.

Students who are not invited to REMS interviews will still be considered for regular admission to the University and will be notified of our decision by April 1.
