We will begin reviewing applications after the September 15th deadline. We do not interview non-resident or WICHE applicants and admission decisions will be based upon application materials only. Selected in-state applicants will be invited to interview using the Multiple Mini Interview format via Zoom. We anticipate having non-resident and WICHE admission decisions made by mid-December and communicated via email. Oregon interview invitations will be sent out by mid-December as well.
