A. What happens if I apply to more than one school and receive offers from multiple schools?
If you apply for more than one school/program during the application window, you may receive multiple offers. You will have until the acceptance deadline you receive your offer notification to decide which one offer you want and to accept that offer. Your email/text notification from SchoolMint will tell you how to accept your preferred offer.
Once you have accepted an offer, SchoolMint will send you another notification confirming your acceptance, along with details on your next steps. Please be aware that once you accept one offer, any other offer(s) you may currently have will automatically be declined.
B. What happens if I receive an offer from one school and am placed on a waitlist for another school?
Another scenario if you apply to multiple schools, is that you might receive an offer for one school and a notification that you have been placed on a waitlist for another school. You can accept the offer and still remain on the other school’s waitlist. Your waitlisted application will stay on the waitlist unless you withdraw it or ask to have it withdrawn. If later you receive an offer from your waitlisted school, you will still be able to accept it. Once you accept a new offer, any offer that you might have previously accepted will automatically be withdrawn. You will still remain on the waitlist for any other school that has not made you an offer.
If at any time you would like to add an application for an additional school or program, please contact the Enrollment Office by phone or email. Each student is allowed a maximum of 3 active applications at any given moment. (Active = in Submitted, Waitlisted, Offered, or Accepted status.)
