Some academic departments have their own application deadline and may have additional application requirements. For graduate students seeking funding, departmental deadlines may vary. To find the deadline for your department, locate your department on our Programs of Study webpage.

We recommend submitting all materials to the Office of Graduate and International Admissions at least one month before the departmental deadline.

For departments with no deadlines, all application materials, including all transcripts and any required test scores, should reach the Graduate School by the deadlines listed below.

Priority will be given to applicants who meet the following application deadlines: 

  • Fall semester (August - December):  April 1.  However, by applying in January, you may be considered for financial support (degree seeking only).
  • Spring semester (January - May):  October 1
  • Summer semester (May - July):  March 1

Applications received after these dates will be processed as space is available.
