Summer Quarter – Cycle 19

09/28/2015 — 10/09/2015

This cycle will be returning to Appreview Plus with the goal of switch to this system in November. Appreview Plus is a new implementation of our online applicant review system that decouples us from the Grad School data feed allowing us to keep access to historical data, support local application (applications not through MyGrad) and better integrate with student data in STEP.
