Application decisions

Application decisions will be sent via email as a Secure Academic Note (SAN).  Undeliverable messages returned because of either a full inbox or use of a "spam" filter will be considered delivered without further action required of the University.  The planned date of notification is June 15, 2018 by 5:00pm.  All application decisions are final and may not be appealed for the current application cycle.  It may be possible to apply again for the following application cycle if you have not completed four semesters or 60 credit hours in-residence.  

If your application is denied

If your application is denied, we recommend you look for alternative majors that can assist you in meeting your career goals.  Consider using Wayfinder, or schedule an appointment with an academic advisor in the Vick Center for Strategic Advising and Career Counseling.

Transcripted Certificates provide great options for pairing with majors in other colleges.  For example, students interested in Computer Science should consider the Elements of Computing certificate.  Students pursuing a health profession have the option of pursuing a Pre-Health Professions Certificate.  There are many certificate options that allow for alternative paths to help you meet future goals.

if your application is accepted

Congratulations!  Once you have received a SAN acceptance, you will need to confirm your acceptance by signing a change of college form at the front desk in WC Hogg (WCH 1.106).  Accepted students will need to confirm acceptance by the eighth class day of the fall semester.  If you fail to confirm your acceptance by the stated deadline, your admission to CNS will be revoked and you will remain in your original college.

Admitted students will have the ability to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor in the College of Natural Sciences.  Once you have confirmed acceptance, your major will be changed to your admitted major only.  The major change will allow potential access to courses that were previously restricted to CNS majors only.
