Final admissions documents

Visit your Status Check page, which lists the materials that the university needs before new students can enroll in courses. These items are also listed here. Original transcripts are required from all institutions at which a degree was earned; such complete trascripts must reflect that a degree was earned.



Some vaccines are recommended and it is possible that you might not need to obtain a vaccine in order to begin the Fall semester. A meningococcal vaccine is required, but only for new students under the age of 22 at the time of the start of the school year. If this applies to you, the date on the vaccine record cannot be less than 10 days before the start of classes. See the instructions to submit.
