Applications remain on file for three (3) years. Applicants who have either withdrawn their application or were rejected for admission within that period may request that their retained application be reconsidered (re-activated) for the next admission cycle. The request for reactivation must be in writing and should be submitted to the Graduate School. If the applicant would like to add supporting materials or update the application in any way, a new application fee of $50 is required. It is in the applicant’s best interest to update the application and, if relevant, include information on what the applicant has done during the past year. New letters of recommendation may also help if authored by a recent supervisor who can address the applicant’s improved preparedness for the degree program of interest.
