Deadlines for Admission

Deadlines are set by your program department

While deadlines for graduate programs tend to be December or January, you will have to check with your intended department to verify the exact deadline for your program. Many graduate programs admit students to start in the Fall semester only.

Tips on When to Apply

You should submit your application as early as possible, as most programs process applications in the order received. Some graduate programs have very strict deadlines. If the program is not full, applications received after the priority deadline listed may be processed. If possible, you should apply at least 6 months, but no more than 12 months, before the semester for which you are seeking admission.
