Letters of Evaluation

You can submit your application before TMDSAS has received your letters of evaluation.
Your letters will be added to your application as they are received and they will not cause a delay to your application processing time.

Letters should not be sent to TMDSAS until after the application opens. Do not have any letters delivered to TMDSAS until you have started your application.
