The application process limits requests for information to prior conduct and academic information.  In the event an Applicant independently and voluntarily discloses additional personal information such as past emotional trauma, physical disabilities, or mental health challenges as part of a personal essay or statement, the self-disclosure of unsolicited personal information will not be considered a student report and those self-disclosures may not result in University initiated referrals for intervention or student support services.  In the event an Applicant is admitted, at the time of full enrollment a student may initiate contact with the available student success offices for support or guidance.
