Admission Emails

Congratulations! (Email #1)

Dear Applicants,

Congratulations on your admission to the Master of Engineering Management Program! I hope that you'll join us in August and become a member of our newest class. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at memp@duke.edu.

This email kicks off a series of emails that the Admissions Team will send to you to help you as you make your decision. This information will be sent out as it becomes available and be archived online at: http://memp.pratt.duke.edu/2016-2017-admitted-email-archive.  For now, here are a few resources to consider as you see if our program is right for you.

Admitted Student Day
Both the MEM and MEng programs will host an Admitted Student Day on March 25, 2016, and we hope that you'll attend this event that is run entirely by current students. Registration is required, and space is limited, so sign up soon if you'd like to attend! If you cannot attend, please note that we have posted information from previous events online; see the Admitted Student Day page for links. We'll post information from the 2016 event as soon as we can.

Admissions Ambassadors
As mentioned above, our admissions team can help with your questions, but sometimes, you have questions that only a student or alum can answer. Happily, we have a group of alumni and current students who volunteer to contact admitted students to answer questions from a student's point of view. Common topics include anything from courses to life in Durham to careers. We have asked an Admissions Ambassador to contact you in the next few weeks, and we hope that you will find this helpful. 

Note that if you did not give us permission to release your contact information, we could not assign an ambassador to contact you.

Connecting with Potential Classmates
If you're on Facebook, there's a group for Admitted Master of Engineering Management students. Join in the conversation and get a head start on getting to know your classmates!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/570413923122404/

I hope that you will become a member of the Master of Engineering Management Program in Fall 2016. Please let me know if I can help with any questions.

Next Steps (Email #2)

Dear Applicants,

This is the second in a series of emails that the Admissions Team will send to you to help you as you explore all that Duke has to offer. If you miss anything, note that all email is archived online at http://memp.pratt.duke.edu/2016-2017-admitted-email-archive

This week, we'll briefly talk about next steps in the enrollment process.  

Accepting or Declining the Offer of Admission
Admitted students should complete the Enrollment Form found in Applicant Self-Service to formally accept or decline the offer of admission.  The form includes a brief survey where the applicant indicates that they'll be coming to Duke or not, with follow-up questions that the program uses to understand how we can better serve applicants. If you have not already done so, please complete your form by the deadline indicated in your letter.

Deposit
Note that we do not require a deposit to accept the offer of admission.

Official Transcripts
As you are aware, your application was reviewed and an admissions decision was made using unofficial, scanned copies of your transcript(s). If you want to accept our offer of admission and will enroll in the program, we require official copies of those transcript(s). A separate email will be sent to remind you of this once you accept the offer of admission. 

The FAFSA for US Citizens and Permanent Residents
If you are planning on applying for a federal Stafford or Perkins loan, you can complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form at www.studentloans.gov.

For further information on FAFSA and the U.S. Department of Education’s student aid programs, you may call 1-800-433-3243 seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to midnight (Eastern time). When completing the FAFSA form online, you will be asked for Duke’s Title IV code; it is E00165. Once you have received confirmation that your forms are complete and have been forwarded to the University, a financial aid officer will complete your aid award. If you have any questions during this process, you may contact Ms. Lisa Roop-Wioskowski who manages Graduate Financial Aid at 919-681-3247 or grad-finaid@duke.edu.

The Visa Process (I-20 or DS-2019) for International Students
A separate email with detailed instructions on the Visa Process will be sent in mid-April, after you accept the offer of admission. Your I-20 or DS-2019 will be processed after your official transcripts and all visa documents have been received. You may send these in the same mail package. 

Visit Duke's Visa Services Office at https://visaservices.duke.edu/category/student_admission.php for more information, and note specifically the links for Funding Guidelines and a PowerPoint presentation highlighting key information. Do not send any documentation before you are requested to do so.

Admitted Student Day

We are gathering information from last week’s Admitted Student Day, and we’ll notify you when it’s available online.

We're here to help.
If you have any questions, please let us know. Also, if you haven't already joined the Facebook group, take a look. We have several current students on hand to help with any information you need. 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/570413923122404/

That's it for today. Please let me know if I can help with any questions.

Admitted Student Day (Special Email!)

Dear Applicants,

This is a special note in a series of emails that will help you as you consider life at Duke. As always, information is archived online at http://memp.pratt.duke.edu/2016-2017-admitted-email-archive.      

Duke held its sixth annual Admitted Student Day (ASD) on Friday, March 25, 2016. ASD is entirely run by current students, and this year's team strove to make the day informative and fun so that attendees could see what a great experience life at Duke can be. We welcomed admitted applicants from both the MEM and MEng programs, and an overview of the day for those who missed it is available online:

http://memp.pratt.duke.edu/asd2016

The site features videos from the day as well as copies of the handouts that were given to attendees.  Take a look!

Remember: if you haven’t already done so, you should accept or decline the offer of admission and answer a few short questions via Applicant Self Service.  Please do so by April 15 for Round 1. Note that we do not require a deposit to accept the offer of admission. 

As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at memp@duke.edu

That's it for today's email. Let me know if you have questions!

Important Dates (Email #3)

Dear Applicants,

This is the third in a series of emails that the Admissions Team will send to you to help you as you explore all that Duke has to offer. If you miss anything, note that all email is archived online at http://memp.pratt.duke.edu/2016-2017-admitted-email-archive. This week, we'll cover important dates for the upcoming year.

Accepting or Declining the Offer of Admission
Remember, if you have not yet accepted or declined the offer of Admission, you should do so by the deadline mentioned in your letter. For most of you, that should be April 15 for Round 1. 

Semester Schedule
The Master of Engineering Management Program follows Duke University's academic calendar at http://registrar.duke.edu/academic-calendar, though the program's required orientation will not be listed on this site.

For International Students, Orientation will begin August 15th. 

For US Citizens and Permanent Residents, Orientation will begin August 19th.

THESE DATES ARE AN UPDATE OF WHAT WAS PREVIOUSLY POSTED. Student Services has shifted events, so be sure to follow what they say!

Tuition and Fee Billing
The Bursar's office bills students on a regular basis (see billing schedule and due dates  at http://finance.duke.edu/bursar/Billing/index.php) and bills are posted to student accounts on ACES, Duke's internal student site. Note that this is the only way you'll receive bills - Duke does not send hard copies of bills through the mail. Payment information is available at http://finance.duke.edu/bursar/Payments/index.php. We have posted Estimated Tuition and Fees for 2016-2017 at http://memp.pratt.duke.edu/campus/campus-tuition-and-financial-aid.

North Carolina's Immunization Requirement
We like to mention this early, because it's serious stuff. The state of North Carolina requires that all students entering a university present a certificate of immunization which documents that the student has received all required immunizations. If you don't meet these requirements by the posted deadline, you may be WITHDRAWN FROM THE UNIVERSITY 30 days after classes begin. Don't let that happen to you! If you have to update your immunizations, start now. See http://studentaffairs.duke.edu/studenthealth/immunization-compliance for more information, including deadlines and requirements.

We're here to help.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Also, if you haven't already joined the Facebook group, take a look. We have several current students on hand to help with any information you need.

Housing, Transportation, and Area Resources (Email #4)

Dear Applicants,

This is the fourth in a series of emails that will help you as you consider life at Duke. This information is sent out as it becomes available and is archived online at http://memp.pratt.duke.edu/2016-2017-admitted-email-archive. This week's email offers more information on housing, transportation, and area resources, plus information on student loans, but before we go into that, let me throw in a quick word on...

NetIDs

I received several requests for Net IDs.  These are provided by Duke's Office of Information Technology once a student fully enrolls in the program. 

On to your regularly scheduled email! 

Housing

See http://studentaffairs.duke.edu/hdrl/graduate-professional-students for both on-campus and off-campus housing. Please note that on-campus housing for graduate students is limited due to Duke's commitment to providing undergraduates with three years of on-campus housing. Most graduate students live off campus. When contemplating complexes, be sure to check apartment locations against Duke's bus routes and note that some complexes are served by Duke's Safe Vans Service from dusk to dawn.

Current students went over housing options during Admitted Student Day. If you haven't yet seen these overviews, take a look!

Some of you have been posting roommate notices on the Facebook groups. Another great option to find existing Duke students looking for roommates is DukeList's Roommate Wanted section (Net ID required).

Finally, Duke's Community Housing office has conducted surveys of students living in various complexes in the area. The survey lists pricing, contact information, and options. Students then rank complexes based on condition, property management, noise, and safety, and each complex's crime statistics are listed as well. You can also see the student breakdown for each complex (would you rather live with a lot of undergrads, or other graduate and professional students?). View search results for this information here, but note that the most recent survey is from 2012, so be sure to check pricing.

Transportation

Raleigh-Durham International Airport (http://www.rdu.com/) is less than a half hour from Duke's campus; see http://www.rdu.com/ground-transportation/ for transportation options on getting to Duke.

See http://parking.duke.edu/ for Duke’s Parking & Transportation department. If you plan to bring a car to campus, you can sign up for a parking permit over the summer (June/July). There are many other options if you do not have a car or do not choose to use it.

Cell Phone Providers, Banks, and Grocery Stores

You need to call home once in a while. You'll need to hit the ATM for weekend cash. And after weeks of eating campus food, you might want to venture out for sustenance from an area grocery store.  Duke's International House has a lot of useful information on getting settled into the area whether you're an international student or not.

Student Loan Information

If you applying for a federal Stafford or Perkins loan and have any questions during this process, you may contact Ms. Lisa Roop-Wioskowski in Graduate Financial Aid at 919-681-3247 or grad-finaid@duke.edu.

We're here to help.

If you have any questions, please let me know. Also, if you haven't already joined the Facebook group, take a look. We have several current students on hand to help with any information you need.

Getting Around Durham (Email #5)

Dear Applicants,

This is the fifth in a series of emails that will help you as you consider life at Duke. This information is sent out as it becomes available and is archived online at http://memp.pratt.duke.edu/2016-2017-admitted-email-archive.

Families are pouring into Durham from all over the world to celebrate graduation weekend for the class of 2016, so here's a short email on Getting Around Durham.

Durham

Durham is awesome, but don't take our word for it. See this great site from Duke Law that shows how lov-a-bull Durham is (you'll have to click to understand that). Please check it out - you'll be glad you did!

Getting Around

Will you need a car? Maybe not. Many Duke students leave their cars at home because Duke and Durham make getting around easy by offering convenient options that help Duke become a more sustainable campus.

CarShare, a car-sharing service is on campus and available 24/7. For as little as $9 an hour or $66 per day, you can reserve a sedan, SUV, van, or electric vehicle to run errands, go shopping, perform community service, or take a road trip. One-way rentals are also available on campus through the Enterprise Rent-A-Car office in Durham.

Biking is big on Duke's campus. Bike lanes and paths make it easy to get places fast. Our online map details over 140 unique rack locations around Duke. Bike shops are within walking distance of campus. Riding your bike is the fastest way to get around campus.

GoPass is a free public bus pass that allows all students to ride local and regional transit for free. Duke transit and public buses can also be tracked in real time on your computer or mobile phone. You can also ride the free Bull City Connector to get downtown.

We're here to help.

If you have any questions, please let me know. Also, if you haven't already joined the Facebook group, take a look. We have several current students on hand to help with any information you need.

See Yourself at Duke (End of Year Email Special!)

Dear Applicants,

This is a special end-of-the-year email in a series of emails that will help you as you consider life at Duke and is archived online at http://memp.pratt.duke.edu/2016-2017-admitted-email-archive.

Today's topic: See Yourself at Duke, and what better way to do that (without actually coming to campus) than to view a selection of activities from the year.

If you don't already like the Duke MEM PDC on Facebook, you should! The PDC (Program Development Committee) is a student leadership organization dedicated to improving the student experience. Sub-committees include

  • Career Development and Alumni Relations Committee (CDAR)
  • Creative Communications Committee (CCC)
  • Student Activities Committee (SAC)
  • Student Recruiting Committee (SRC)

Which sub-committee will you be on? SRC, SRC, SRC!

View this year's photo albums to see all that you have to look forward to next year, including orientation, student activities, and of course a little spring fever just before Graduation.

That'll be you next year! Time will fly.

Best of luck!

This will be your last email from the admissions team, but don't fret. You're in great hands with our Student Services team. Expect to hear from them in June.

As always, if you haven't already joined the Facebook group, take a look. We have several current students on hand to help with any information you need.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/570413923122404/

That's it. We can't wait to meet you in August.

PLEASE READ: Important Fall 2016 Tuition Information for All MEM Students (Billing Information)

Hello Future MEMers,

 

Each semester, in the MEM program, you have two options for paying your tuition – per credit or per term. Please keep in mind that your tuition option is currently set to the pay by term optionEach semester your tuition will automatically default to this option. You do not need to contact me if this option is your preference. However, if you prefer the pay by credit option, please email me with this preference as soon as possible.  

 

Here is a quick overview of both options….

 

Pay per term– This makes sense for anyone planning to take 12 credit hours or more each semester with the intention of completing their degree within 2 semesters. With this option, you will be charged a flat rate which will be the equivalent of paying for 4 courses (or 12 credit hours) separately. Any additional courses taken after the fourth course will be considered a “free” course and will not be charged. For billing purposes, each semester, your tuition automatically defaults to this option unless you opt for the following:

 

Pay per credit– This is ideal for people taking 9 credit hours each semester with the intention of completing their degree within 3 semesters instead of 2 semesters. With this option, you are charged per credit rather than being charged a flat rate. This option makes sense for people planning to take more than 2 terms to finish the program. Please note that you can register for a maximum of 12 credit hours with the pay per credit option. However, if you register for more than 9 credit hours with the pay by credit option, you are responsible for paying your entire tuition bill by Monday, August 1st. Failure to pay your entire bill by the August 1st deadline will result in the bill being assessed an additional late payment penalty charge of 1.25%.

 

Please keep in mind the following information:

 

Fall 2016 Tuition Bills will post to ACES account- Sunday, June 26th

Fall 2016 Tuition Bills are due- Monday, August 1st  

Drop/Add deadline- Friday, September 9th

 

---------

 

MEMP Tuition Policies

Students enrolled in the MEM program as full-time residential students will automatically be set up on a per-term billing system, meaning they will be charged the equivalent of 4 separate courses (or 12 credit hours).  Students enrolling as d-MEMP students will also be set up for per term billing; however, they will be charged the equivalent of 2 separate courses.  Students enrolling as part-time will automatically be set up for payments on a per credit basis. If an enrolling student intends to take less than the typical load (4 courses for full time, 2 courses for d-MEMP), please contact Jamila Belk (jamila.belk@duke.edu) to make this change. The last day for making changes to your billing structure is the last day of drop/add in that semester.

 

If a student would like to alter their payment structure after the start of the program, please e-mail Jamila Belk (jamila.belk@duke.edu) . Please note that students must pay the full tuition amount for the program.  For example, you may not take five courses in term one on a semester-based plan and then take three courses in the following term on a per-credit basis.

 

 

Note: To view a current view of your bursar account, please log into your ACES account and click the “View Account History” tab.

Fall Orientation Dates (Updated!)

Hi Everyone,

I know it’s about that time when you’ll want to be booking your flight(s) to Durham.  Here are the dates for orientation.

 

  • International Student Orientation: Monday August 15th  (for check in) - Friday August 19th
  • Domestic (US) Student Orientation: Friday August 19th  
  • Program Orientation for All: Monday August 22nd- Friday August 26th

 

Orientation is mandatory and for the most part will last all day. You should NOT plan to do any major activities during this period (moving in, etc.) We recommend that you plan to come to Durham a few days early so that you have time to move into your new place, set up basic services, and get over jet lag!  It’ll be intense, but it’s also a really fun time meeting and getting to know your fellow classmates J

 

We will send out a comprehensive schedule in the next few weeks that details the actual content and programming, but I wanted to give you this basic information now for planning purposes.

 

Please feel free to email if you have any questions.

 

Best,

 

Lorelle

Finally, we have attached some orientation pre-work assignments we need you to complete prior to your arrival in the in fall. In this package we have included:

 

 

Videos:

 

- Video Youtube: https://youtu.be/IY5Bxko635s

 

- Video Youku: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTYxMTkwMTIxNg==.html

 

We will update you with more information over the summer, but for now, focus on these assignments, which are all due July 20th.

 

Thanks,

Jenny, Leah, and Christina 

MEM Virtual Orientation - Part 3 - StudentServices

Greetings!

As you start to think about your time at Duke, you may be wondering what life outside of class will be like. We’ve put together some material to help you get a better picture and to let you know what your options are for keeping busy, staying healthy, and being safe. 

 

Our Program Development Committee (PDC) also put together an intro to explain how they work and how you can get involved. 

 

Attached you’ll also find a list of some of the clubs/activities that are popular among MEM students

 

Enjoy!
