- On converting your résumé, statements of interest, and transcript into PDF files
For your résumé and statements of interest, open the document through Microsoft Word and use the "Save As" function to save as a PDF. For your transcript, simply cut-and-paste from Banner Web into a Word document (you may need to play with the margins some), then save as a PDF.
- On uploading more than one statement of interest
The application system will only accept one file for your statement(s) of interest. Therefore, multiple statements of interest must be combined into a single file. Please use clear headings to indicate the program(s) to which each statement pertains.
- On making a change or correction to your application
Simply return to the application system and submit a corrected application by the deadline
