Application Information and Timeline
Before You Begin

To assist you in completing the WOW application by the deadline, it is recommended that you view the application timeline below. You will need several documents from external sources such as a letter of offer from your employer and letters of recommendation, so we suggest that you start well before the deadline. However, you can work with Hiatt Career Center counselors to catch up at any point.
