When to Apply

Apply early! It is highly recommended that applications be submitted well prior to the deadline date to allow time for your recommendations to be submitted (if applicable) and the program offices to process their decisions. Some programs offer multiple rounds of admission. These dates are often tied to preferred consideration for fellowships and scholarship opportunities. For specific questions pertaining to admission rounds, contact your program directly.

Applicants Requiring Student Visas

Applicants who require an H1 or H4 visa are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. We anticipate the policies and procedures surrounding issuance of student visas will continue to be strict and time-consuming. Please familiarize yourself with any early application dates and terms specific to the program for which you are applying.

Application Deadlines

The application deadline is the last day that you are able to submit your application to be considered for the program and term for which you are applying. All applications submitted on the deadline date must contain all required information (including official test scores and completed recommendations) to be considered. Applications submitted after the final graduate school deadlines will not be considered for admission for that term.
