Tips for a Successful Application Process
- The UND School of Graduate Studies requires all applicants to submit a complete application before it will be reviewed for admission. For an application to be complete, all of the required materials must be received as official documents. Applications completed after the program deadline may not be reviewed.
- Please send all documents to the School of Graduate Studies, not the department to which you are applying. The Master of Fine Arts portfolio is the only exception to this statement. We cannot guarantee that any documents received outside of the School of Graduate Studies will be attached to your application.
- Any application materials submitted prior to the submission of the online application will be kept active for six months. After six months, if an application has not been received, the documents will be destroyed.
- You will receive emails throughout the admissions process notifying you of updates to your application. It's your responsibility to ensure all submitted materials were received and attached to the application.
- Your official decision letter will be available to view and print in the application system. You will receive an email notification when your decision letter is ready to view. We do not send a letter through the mail. Please monitor your application and email to know when your decision is ready.
