Admission Decisions

The MLS Admissions Committee will carefully examine all parts of the application with plans to announce decisions as soon as possible. The committee operates under a rolling admission process, and admissions may continue until the start of classes. However, international students must file a completed application and all related materials by June 15 to allow sufficient time to secure a student visa for on-campus programs. (Note: this would not apply to students taking the indigenous peoples online courses who have recieved permission from the MLS director to waive the on-campus introductory course.)
