Graduate Applications FAQs

You must log in to the ApplyYourself system to check the status of your application.

Although you may have submitted all the required materials, it is a manual process to match your submitted materials with your online application. Please note that this may take a few business days.

You may not have clicked the “Submit” button. After you complete the online portion of your application, please be sure to click the “Submit” button located at the top of the application page. Otherwise, we will not be able to move your application forward in the review process.

The application fee cannot be waived or refunded.

Application Materials

Portfolios can be submitted online through SlideRoom.

Although you uploaded these documents, the ApplyYourself system does not reflect receipt of them until the Graduate Studies staff manually updates your record. Please allow a few days to complete this process after you have submitted your application.

Please contact the CAMD Graduate Studies Office at [email protected]

Please upload a copy of your transcript(s) to the ApplyYourself online application system before submitting the application.

If you are having difficulties uploading your transcript, please contact the CAMD Graduate Studies Office at [email protected].

You must submit official transcripts from all institutions attended directly to the CAMD Graduate Studies Office by August 15th.

Financial Aid

College financial aid is awarded on a merit basis.

College, university and external aid is available.


As a courtesy, we ask that you please confirm your enrollment status via the ApplyYourself system by the deadline stated in your admission letter.

Graduate Studies at CAMD offers a part-time, non-degree option called “Special Student” status. Special students apply through the online application system, ApplyYourself. Special students are enrolled on a part-time basis and cannot exceed more than 2 courses per semester. A maximum of twelve semester hours over time may be earned prior to applying to a degree program. Please refer to the applicable materials required and deadlines for special students.
