It is password protected so that we can include information specific to you, and it includes a PDF version of your decision letter for you to read, download and print.

If you applied through the Asbury application, use the same email address and password to log in to your Asbury Checklist.

If you applied through Common App, use the link in your “Next Steps to Asbury” email to set up your Asbury Checklist account. (You should receive the email within 48 hours of submitting your application to Asbury.)
