Wait Time After Denial


If candidates are denied admission for:

  • An undergraduate program, they must wait a period of 6 months from the date of denial before another review for admission can be conducted. 
  • graduate program and wish to apply for the same graduate program, they must wait a period of 6 months from the date of denial before another review for admission can be conducted.
  • graduate program and wish to apply for a different graduate program, there is no wait time. 

During the wait time, candidates may be encouraged to improve certain qualities of their application to improve their chances for admission for their future application.  

The denial letter from admissions may cite specific ways that candidates may be able to improve their chances for admission. Even if recommendations that are provided are followed, admission for a future term is never guaranteed.  Admission requirements may change during the wait time and candidates may need to supply additional elements for consideration. As such, candidates are always encouraged to speak with an enrollment advisor.
