Deadlines – one is TODAY and one is coming up

If you plan to apply, be sure you're aware of the deadline!

The application deadlines for the Fisher SMF program are posted here. To recap:

  • International applicants: final deadline is (today) February 15, 2012
  • Domestic applicants: final deadline is June 5, 2012

There is sometimes confusion among applicants with respect to what “international” and “domestic” mean. These terms do NOT necessarily refer to where an applicant is physically located at the time of application. Rather, the terms refer to the applicant’s legal “visa” status. If the applicant needs a student visa to study in the United States, that applicant is an international applicant. An international applicant can be in the U.S. already. For example, if the applicant is in the U.S. on a student visa and is attending a U.S. university and applies to the Fisher SMF program, s/he is an international applicant. All others (e.g. US citizens, US permanent residents) are domestic applicants.

Sorry, don’t panic and please be patient!

We have recently been inundated with e-mails from students who are concerned that their materials have not reached our office. Please do NOT panic and be patient.

Our admissions processing unit has received lots of mail from prospective students and are in the process of entering it into the system. It may take a few days (sometimes even as many as 10 days) for your application to be considered complete.

Unfortunately, due to time constraints, we cannot answer e-mails regarding your application status. You can check your status online through our online application. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Please, keep calm and carry on!

Applications are rolling in!

As the first deadline (November 19th) approaches, please be patient with our office as we are getting a significant amount of questions and requests.
A couple notes regarding  the application:

  • Items that are sent to us via surface mail (e.g. transcripts, etc.) are noted as received on the day we receive them and will be considered “on time” if this date meets our application deadline.
  • You can check your application status online by logging into your account. Please do not contact the office to confirm receipt of materials.
  • There is and will be a delay between the time that we receive materials and those materials being recorded as “received” on your status page. The delay can be anywhere from one to ten business days, depending on the time of year. Around application deadlines, expect the delay to be closer to be between five and ten business days.
  • If you submit materials to us (e.g. transcripts, TOEFL scores, etc.) prior to submitting your application, we are unable to confirm receipt of those materials.
  • Please do not send hard copies of items that are already included in the online application.

Best of luck, everyone!

Don’t just stand there…submit your application! The first deadline for submission is Friday, Nov. 19th!
