Helpful Information

We are "open" on Plan A, so your acceptance is basically guaranteed under that Plan! We are "even" on Plan B, so your acceptance is not guaranteed under that Plan...either be willing to come on Plan A or have some strong back-up school choices.

Don't worry if you are accepted without on-campus housing...there are many, many rental houses and apartments within walking distance to campus.
