Graduate Application Deadlines

Application Deadlines

For the majority of our programs, applications are accepted for three enrollment terms: spring, summer and fall. Often referred to as "rolling admissions", you can apply anytime and once your application is completed, it is reviewed. The earlier you apply, the sooner you receive your admission decision, which is often as soon as 3-4 weeks after submitting your complete application.

We typically close our online application one month prior to the upcoming start term to ensure enough time to process your application.
