3. When you are satisfied that your application is complete and that your supporting documentation has been properly uploaded, click on the third tab entitled 'Review & Submit'.

4. When you submit your application, you will be prompted to pay a $100 one-time application fee. Upon payment, your application will be submitted to the Admission Office for review.

5. At this point, you have successfully submitted your application. You will be notified by email of any change in status, and by re-visiting the site, you can act accordingly. For example, you may be asked to forward supporting documentation if it was not uploaded to the site.
