After all application materials are submitted...

When applicants have submitted all materials required of the Graduate Admissions Office and Warnell, all documents will be sent to the faculty selected as potential major professor(s) on the Graduate Study Objectives form.  If the faculty member agrees to serve as major professor, and the student meets minimum requirements, the Warnell Graduate Office submits a recommendation of acceptance to the Graduate School.

If a faculty member agrees to serve as major professor but the applicant does not meet Warnell minimum requirements, the faculty member and student may petition the Warnell Graduate Affairs Committee for admission. Please contact the Warnell Graduate Programs Office for more information regarding admission appeals.  

If no faculty member agrees to serve as a major professor or if the Graduate Affairs Committee does not recommend admission, the application must be denied admission.  After Warnell makes a recommendation to the Graduate School, Graduate Admissions will send a letter in approximately 10 days informing the applicant whether he/she has been accepted.
