Error on Application

I completed my application and sent it yesterday. I realized that I made a mistake with my date of birth. Do I need to cancel my application and re-apply? Ali


Dear Ali,

Thank you for submitting your application! Your advisor can change this information on your application and contact the school so that they have the correct information. So, you do NOT need to cancel your application nor do you need to re-apply. It is important that the school has your correct date of birth because this information is entered onto your I-20 (for USA ONLY) document required to apply for your student visa. Also, make sure you check that the spelling of your name on your application matches the spelling of your name in your passport as this is also reflected on your I-20 form.
