Some, but not all, of our graduate programs have specific application deadlines. Those departments that do not have specific deadlines listed use rolling admissions, which means you may apply any time before August 1 for fall term admissions (June 1 for international applicants) and December 15 for spring term admissions (October 15 for international applicants). These are the dates by which your applications must be complete, meaning that all required documentation must be received in the Graduate School by these dates.
Consideration for financial aid will begin on the date of the application deadline. If the department does not have a deadline, then application files must be complete by February 15 for fall admission/financial aid (November 15 for spring term admission/financial aid; April 15 for summer term admission/financial aid).
