You will receive a confirmation email if your application is successfully received; please do not resubmit until you check your email for confirmation. You may resubmit application at a later date if you have changes, but this will generate repetitive recommendation requests and can sometimes cause confusion. A better way to handle changes to your application (like an updated resume, etc.) is to email reuga@pdx.edu directly.
