Things have changed. How do I change something on the application I already submitted?

Once an application is submitted, the applicant cannot make changes to it. The application is a legal document and includes a statement you must sign stating that you certify the information provided is true, complete, and your own.  

You are still able to upload documents after your application has been submitted by logging into your Application Status Portal. Select the document type from the drop-down list under Upload Materials.  If the document type that you are uploading isn't listed (i.e., additional recommendation letter, secondary transcript), choose "Other Unlisted Upload" then browse for the appropriate file and click the Upload button. 

If it is necessary to request a name change, please submit a request via and attach a notarized copy of one of following: 

  • Birth certificate 
  • Divorce decree 
  • Marriage license 
  • Court-ordered name change 
  • Social security card  

You are allowed the following application changes at no cost to you: 

  • A one-time request to defer your application to a subsequent semester prior to the start of the original semester of matriculation– see Deferring an Application for important information. 
  • A one-time request to change the campus or degree level prior to the start of the original semester of matriculation within the same graduate program.  

If you decide to apply to a different graduate program or request a change to the degree level, campus, or term after the start of the semester of original matriculation, you will be responsible for submitting a new application and application fee. Once your application is submitted and the application fee paid, the application fee is non-refundable and non-transferable.
