Contact SMTD Admissions

The SMTD Admissions team has been working remotely due to COVID-19. As of August 30, we are now returning to the Moore building offices in a hybrid in-person and remote combination. Until public health guidelines improve, personnel will gladly meet with prospective students, faculty, staff, and students by appointment. The best way to contact Admissions during this time is via email. Thank for your understanding.
