Getting Settled


My official letter of acceptance went to my parent's house. Can they scan the Offer of Acceptance to me for me to sign and send to you?
No. We must receive the original copy of the acceptance offer, and it must be signed by the accepted applicant. We can't accept a copy of the signed original in any format (fax, scan or photocopy), nor can we accept a signed photocopy of the original. 

If UASOM has received my final transcripts, why does my "Minimum Coursework Completed" say no?
While you are currently accepted to UASOM and have sent copies of your final transcripts with your degree posted, your "Minimum Coursework Completed?" may still say "no" when you check the status of your application. We don't audit transcripts for required coursework until May 15 due to fluctuations in our accepted applicants. 

If your undergraduate college requires composition and literature or interdisciplinary reading and writing courses in lieu of English; if you have taken an acceptable course to satisfy math requirements; or if you have specific questions if a specific class you've taken meets requirements, email
