SOPHAS Application Tips

  1. To be considered for admission, applications must be submitted and verified in SOPHAS by the application deadline, with official test score reports. To allow time for the verification process, plan to have your application e-submitted with all required materials received by SOPHAS 2-4 weeks before the deadline.
     
  2. Don't wait for your standardized test scores, letters of recommendation, or official transcripts, or other documents to be received by SOPHAS before submitting your application. Submit your application as soon as you have entered all required information. These items will be automatically added to your application as they are received by SOPHAS.
     
  3. Don't expect your application to be complete or ready for verification immediately after you e-submit. In order for SOPHAS to give an application the status of "complete" and place it in the verification queue, the following are required:
  4. Remember to check your status. Once you e-submit, monitor your status in the “my status” section to ensure all required documents are received and your application is being processed. SOPHAS will send an e-mail to the primary email address you entered into your application if they are unable to verify your application for any reason. Check your status often until your application is complete with a status of "verified."
