The current status of operations due to COVID-19 precautions means that while applications to the MEAM programs are still accepted after the published application deadlines, applicants are cautioned that their applications may not be reviewed in time for the requested entry term (especially Fall 2020), and may therefore be deferred to a later entry term.
