Resumes should not exceed 2 pages and for most applicants 1 page is sufficient.  We recommend having your college or university’s career center review your resume before submitting.

Unofficial transcripts are acceptable.  Please be sure to submit your transcripts for each post-secondary institution you’ve attended.

In the application students must list the names and email addresses for 2 references.  Once their application is submitted, their references will be contacted and asked to complete a form.  Be sure to let your references know that they will be contacted and asked to submit a form within 10 days of receiving it; Tell them about the program and why you are interested in it. You may want to share your resume and personal statement with them as well. Good references will be able to speak to specific strengths and skills.
