International Students Preparation-information students who wish to come Spring 2013 but whose application status is not yet "Deposit Paid"

Once your application status says "Accepted. Congratulations!", in order for VISA and I-20 information to be sent you must to pay your tuition deposit. After your deposit has been paid and ISSS receives your status information, they will issue your VISA and I-20 information.  It is late now if you have not already done this.  If you are in the United States now and wish to come without visa and I20 being an issue, if you are an accepted student, plan to come to our orientation.  Pay your deposit that will complete your application process unless the Graduate School is asking your for financial information.

If your application status says "Provisional Admit - Funds Req" you must send your financial documents before your status becomes "Accepted. Congratulations!"
