All required documents including portfolio if required should be submitted by the deadline, however you have up to one week after the deadline to send transcripts. The application should be submitted first before the other documents in order to file your documents with your application, but if supplementary documents arrive first, they will be filed and then assembled when your application arrives. If your application is incomplete, we will contact you by email to let you know what is missing in enough time for you to submit the missing document(s).
