Many programs and departments have deadline dates as early as December or January, so it is extremely important to know the application deadline for your program of interest. Applicants who submit after deadlines might NOT be considered for admission. To avoid delays, it is strongly recommended that you complete your application several weeks before the deadline.
Some graduate programs may have rolling admission, which means they accept applications on an ongoing basis. If this is the case with your program of interest, you should still apply as early as possible, and no later than one month before the term begins. Fall term begins in early September, Spring term in mid January, and Summer term in mid June. Applicants will no longer be able to access the ApplyYourself (AY) online application at this point.
Please do not apply more than one year in advance of the proposed entry date. In most cases, deadlines that occur on a holiday or weekend will be extended through the next regular workday. Some programs do not consider applications during the spring or summer.
