For many financial aid opportunities, it is better to apply by December 15.
This allows the application committee more time to review applications and nominate students for tuition awards, fellowships, and any teaching or research assistantships that may be available.
While we do offer a year round application process and some applicants may periodically be accepted after this date, most non-fall applicants will miss many funding opportunities and chances of acceptance are greatly decreased. For these terms (winter, spring, summer), we follow the Graduate School's admission deadlines.
If you wish to start in a term other than fall, you are highly encouraged to confirm with faculty that they are able to serve as your advisor *before* applying.
In addition to submitting the application form and paying the application fee to the Graduate School, we need we need to receive the following:
On the application, you will also be asked four questions that will help the review committee in processing your application. Each answer should be no more than 250 words.
*Additional items may be sent directly to the Graduate School office.
