Application Deadlines

Submission Deadlines

The Submission Deadline is the last day you are able to submit your application for consideration for the program and term for which you are applying.  All applications submitted ON the deadline date should contain ALL required information (including official test scores and completed recommendations).   It is recommended that applications be submitted prior to the submission deadline date to allow time for your recommendations to be submitted (if applicable) and the program offices to process their decisions. Some programs have deadlines for multiple rounds for admission. If you miss the submission deadline for the term to which you're applying, you may change the term for which you are applying or contact the program to close out your application.

Applicants Requiring Student Visas

Applicants who require a H1 or H4 visa are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Some programs have deadline dates specific to applicants with this requirement. The primary reason for submitting an early application is that we anticipate the policies and procedures surrounding issuance or student visas will continue to be strict and time-consuming. Please familiarize yourself with your program's parameters regarding deadline dates and terms are applicable to students requiring H1 or H4 visas.

Application submission dates for the upcoming term are listed below. Please contact the program for deadline dates for subsequent semesters.
