Document Processing Over the Holiday Period

Please note that the dropbox in Walker Hall will be inaccessible on the dates that the first floor is closed. If you or your students have any admissions documents to drop off in November or December, please plan to do so on a date the first floor is open. Otherwise, please send physical documents via campus mail and we will retrieve them when we reopen for our normal business hours. The processing time for admissions-related documents submitted during the December office closure will be slower than normal and may not be completed until we return to campus in the new year.
