Dates and Deadlines

Important Dates

Application deadlines for each academic program can be found on the application information page. Many programs have recommended dates and deadlines earlier than those listed below or have a rolling admission process.

If a program has an earlier deadline that the College of Graduate Studies dates, the earlier deadlines take precedence. If you apply after these dates, you may not receive full consideration for any financial support and you risk the program being at capacity.

If the academic program you are interested in does not have a deadline then please assume these dates are the deadlines. 

Recommended Submission Dates for full consideration of financial support or assistantships

  • Fall semester (August to December) - Feb. 1

  • Spring semester (January to May) - Sept. 1

  • Summer session (Begins mid May) - Feb. 1

Applicants applying after these dates should check with the departmental contact before applying to determine if assistantships are still available.

College of Graduate Studies Semester Application Deadlines

Domestic Students

  • Fall semester (August to December) - July 15
  • Spring semester (January to May) - Dec. 1
