Routine Processing of Certain Documents Submitted to the Office of Enrollment and Discipline

The following list of documents shows the normal processing times. In most cases, you should receive a letter or other contact from the Office of Enrollment and Discipline (OED) within the listed time frames from our date of receipt. This list is not exhaustive. Please note that if you wish to receive acknowledgement of any communication, you must include a self-addressed, stamped post card to be used for such purpose. The card should identify each type of paper filed. OED will stamp the receipt date on the card and place it in the outgoing mail. However, the card is not verification that all of those items you identified were present.
