Any well-qualified person with a bachelor’s degree from a recognized college or university or with equivalent international education may apply. Also:
Applications for upcoming fall and spring admission periods become available in early September every year. Application deadlines are subject to change so applicants are encouraged to check the applicant deadline information of your department. An application is considered complete when all required credentials, as listed on the Application Deadlines and Requirements page, have been received by the Admissions Office.
All PhD applications, submitted and complete by the program deadline, are considered for admission with five years of fellowship funding. Master’s applications must be submitted and complete by the program deadline in order to be considered for admission and financial assistance as departmental funds allow. Please be aware that some programs have earlier deadlines for master’s applications to be considered for all available forms of merit-based financial aid, both University-wide and departmental. Applicants are encouraged to check the Application Deadlines and Requirements page for information or contact the department directly.
