Applications and payment must be received on or before the admissions deadline for the academic program to which you are applying (list of programs and their admissions deadlines). The application closes at 11:59pm Eastern Time on the posted deadline date. Application fees that arrive after the admissions deadline will be returned and unpaid applications will not be reviewed for admission.
We recommend that individuals who wish to be considered for Graduate School funding submit complete applications by December 15 to receive full consideration for Graduate School fellowships. Please note that if your intended program's deadline is earlier than December 15, your application and payment must be received on or before the program's deadline, 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 15 funding submission 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 submitted. No additional fall applications to any program will be accepted after June 8.
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 13 and no summer applications will be accepted after March 9.
Applications and payment must be received on or before the admissions deadline for your intended program. The application closes at 11:59pm Eastern Time on the posted deadline date.
