Do I need to follow up on my application?

  • It is your responsibility to follow up with the admission offices and to confirm that they have received everything. When following up, it is imperative that you be friendly and polite with everyone.
  • When applying to UHM, you should receive an e-mail message confirming receipt and will tell you what, if any, documents are missing. Not all schools will do this!
  • If you do not hear from the Admissions Office within a month of submitting the application plus fee, contact them directly.
  • Send neat, heartfelt thank you notes to each and every referee who wrote you a letter of recommendation.
