Composite and Supporting Letters Timeline

Letters are written on your behalf, so remain cognizant that it is a privilege that folks are writing to support you in this process-- act accordingly, i.e. with clear communication; gratitude; and respect. The Health Professions Program is here to assist you in the process at every step. There are several parts that you are responsible for, in order for us to assist you. Please read through this entire page so you will be prepared for the steps ahead.

Ideally, a draft of your composite letter would be completed before or by July 1st. We ask that the absolute deadline be August 1st, but earlier is better for you, especially if you were able to submit your part of the application early.

While the letter deadlines are in place to benefit you, we will still work with you to have your composite letter packet completed even if you or your letter writers have a later timeline! But we HIGHLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO FOLLOW THIS TIMELINE! Please speak to an HPP advisor if you have concerns about the timeline.
