Because some applicants may not be able to easily gather the materials for the application in time for the December 1 deadline due to recent natural disasters, the Biosciences programs will consider incomplete applications submitted by the December 1 deadline from affected students. These applicants should submit a supplemental statement detailing the particular circumstances affecting them under the "Hardship Request" at the end of the application.
If applicants are able to gather the required materials before the committees have finished deliberating and wish to submit them, they may log back in to the application and upload them. Contact Michael Watson, Admissions and Database Administrator with any questions about the process.
If you would like to request a fee waiver as a result of hardship resulting from recent natural disasters in your area, please contact Michael Watson.
