Updates (v. 1/19/16)

Application sections and all required materials are due Tuesday, January 19, 2016 by 4pm.

We are experiencing a high volume of phone calls and emails to our office regarding the MED application / program, particularly confirmation of receipt of materials which is slowing down the processing of materials. Please be patient as we address each of your email inquiries; you may not receive a response till the last week of January. As we process nearly 500 applications, your patience, more than your persistence, is appreciated at this time.

Please look over the various information provided regarding the MED program in the tab above. General MED FAQs and Requirements pages will list pertinent information regarding the program and applying.
