*Please note that if a student withdraws from the application process after the initial submission, the status of the application will be updated to Withdrawn and it'll move to an inactive state.

After clicking Start Review, you may now begin the process of reviewing the application.

On the application screen, you may view activity related to the application, email the student directly if you need to communicate, and download any associated application forms in pdf format.
