What it Means to be on The Waitlist

If you received a notification of placement on the waitlist, you have met the admissions criteria for admissions; however, due to receiving more admissible applicants than there are seats, we are not currently able to offer admission unless a seat opens prior to the start of the quarter.

Frequently and for any number of reasons, admitted applicants plans change and a seat opens up. There is no way to know if or when a seat may open up. However, waitlist lengths are limited to a number that is realistic in terms of how many seats we think may open.

While on the waitlist, explore the following websites: Admitted Students, Orientation and Transitions, University Resources, Financial Aid and Scholarships, and the Academic Calendar.

What to Expect
  • If a seat becomes available, you will be contacted via email anytime between now and one business week prior to the quarter. If this happens, you will be expected to complete the required steps for admitted students. If you do not hear from us, you can assume a seat did not open up.
  • If a seat does not become available, you will have the option to move your starting date to the next quarter of admission.
