Application Tips and Tricks

  • Get a head start! Whether it’s diving into an essay question or identifying a reference, prepare each part of your application as early as possible.
  • Save, Save, Save! If you work on your application over several days, remember to save your application each time before exiting.
  • Every word counts! If you exceed the word count, an error message will appear, and you won’t be able to submit your application.
  • Submit your reference! Complete the Educator Reference promptly so your reference has time to complete and submit their recommendation before the application deadline.
  • Proofread and review! Once you submit your application, changes cannot be made. Make sure your final application is just the way you want it.
  • Hit the green button! You must hit the final green SUBMIT button for us to receive your application.
  • Check your inbox! You will receive an automated email confirmation after you submit your application. Look in your email inbox, junk, or promotions folder.
