It is recommended that your application be complete 30 days before the deadline. We can't make a decision until all your application materials have arrived.
If your department has no deadline and you are not applying for financial aid, you should submit a completed application approximately four months before the start of the term.
It is important to send all necessary documents and fees immediately, including your original degree/diploma certificate and a transcript/mark lists. All non-English documents must include certified English translations.
