Application DeadlinesApplyInquire

Application deadlines are set by the individual Graduate Program Admission Committees and relate to the semester and year to which one has applied. The “final deadline to apply” date means the application must be “submitted” before midnight (Eastern time) on the date listed below. Applicants may add certain outstanding required documents past the deadline through their status page but will not be considered for admission until their application is complete. Applicants can also see a list of outstanding required documents on their status page.

Application for fellowship, tuition scholarship or assistantship merit-based financial awards is a part of the admission application form and is made at the time of application. The university-wide application deadline for merit-based awards is February 1. Applicants are encouraged to apply early and contact the major instructional department for additional application information and for deadlines earlier than February 1.
