Application Deadlines

Graduate degree seeking students:  Some academic departments have their own application deadline and may have additional application requirements. For graduate students seeking funding, departmental deadlines may vary. To find the deadline for your department, locate your department on our graduate degree programs webpage.

We recommend submitting all materials to the Office of Graduate and International Admissions at least one month before the departmental deadline.

For departments with no deadlines, and for non-degree, returning, visiting and senior citizens, all application materials, including all transcripts and any required test scores, should reach the Graduate School by the deadlines listed below. 

Application deadlines for the Graduate School are:

  • Fall semester: August 1
  • Spring semester: December 1
  • Summer sessions: April 15

Applications received after the deadline will be automatically deferred to the next available Spring or Fall semester.
