Applications Processing

Applications are processed by the administrative coordinator who collates transcripts, scores, references, and other required documents into individual application files.

The admissions director then evaluates applications holistically. Applications deemed competitive will be sent to the selection committee.

The selection committee is comprised of professionals, academics, alumni, and alumni parents who make admission recommendations with input from TAMS departments, staffs, and assistants. The director will then extend official admission offers.
