Residency Application Process > General
These instructions will discuss the components of your application plus offer important information in the entire application process. Some important things to keep in mind:
So that we may communicate with you at all times, it is very important that you notify the Registrar's Office of any temporary or permanent change in your address and/or telephone number so that you can be reached if necessary.
Email communication is vital to you in the matching process. Please read your email regularly and make sure that you routinely clean out your mailbox so that you don't miss any important communications because your mailbox is full.
The Office for Student Affairs and Career Counseling is available to provide guidance and advice to each student with the residency application process.
