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.
Please note that the ApplyYourself (AY) online application will have a closing date as well. These dates are:
Fall semester - July 15
Spring semester - November 15
Summer session - March 15
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. While applicants are encouraged to apply for admission well in advance of the term in which they wish to begin their graduate study, please do not apply more than one year in advance of the proposed entry date.
