Applications and payment must be received on or before the admissions closed date of the intended program listed (list of programs and their admissions closed dates). The application closes at 11:59pm Eastern Time on the posted deadline date. Application fees that arrive after the admissions closed deadline must be returned and the unpaid application will not be considered.
For individuals who wish to be considered for Graduate School funding, we recommend submitting complete applications by December 12 to receive full consideration for Graduate School fellowships. Please note that if your intended program's admissions closed date is earlier than December 12, your application and payment must be received on or before the program's closed date, regardless of the recommended fellowship date.
Please also note that most of the funding available to graduate students is program-based and many programs continue to accept applications after the recommended Graduate School December 12 funding due date. Many programs have recommended application due dates posted on their individual web sites which you should comply with to ensure priority consideration of your application.
Final deadlines for admission (not funding) vary by program and may change or close without prior notification. Once a program is closed it is no longer listed as a selection on the application and no application can be started or finished. No additional fall applications to any program will be accepted after June 12.
SPRING AND SUMMER:
Very few programs admit new students for Spring or Summer terms. For those few that do, no Spring applications will be accepted after October 10 and no Summer applications will be accepted after March 13.
Applications and payment must be received on or before the admissions closed date for your intended program. The application closes at 11:59pm Eastern Time on the posted deadline date.
