Strong Recommendations

All application materials, including school materials, should either be:
  • Sent to the Minnesota address (listed above)
  • Submitted online (applications and secondary school reports only)
  • Do not send any application materials to Washington, DC.

    • Doing so risks missing the deadline, and disqualification.

  • Use a courier mail service (such as FedEx or UPS) with a guaranteed delivery date.

  • The application deadline is the receipt deadline, not the postmark deadline.

    • This will be strictly enforced.

  • Application deadline: All materials—secondary school reports, transcripts, etc.—must be received in our St. Peter, Minnesota office by 5:00p.m. (Central Time), February 23, 2017.

    • This also applies to online and emailed applications.
