Deadlines and Decisions

For information about deadlines please view our Deadlines and Enrollment Information page.

The Admissions Committee reviews applications on a rolling basis. However, applicants are strongly encouraged to apply by the recommended deadline. There are several benefits to applying by the recommended deadlines. These advantages include: receipt of an admissions decision on an ideal timeline (i.e. decision in spring for fall applicants), priority consideration for scholarships and fellowships, and sufficient visa processing time for international students.

Typically, admissions decisions are released approximately eight weeks after an application is completed. The review process may take longer during the summer and winter recesses. Please note that the Admissions Committee only reviews complete applications.

All official final decisions will be released to the applicant by hard copy letter. Official admissions decisions will not be released via phone, email or fax. Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), admissions decisions will only be released directly to the applicant.

Yes, you may reapply to the same or to a different degree and program as your previous application. For more information please check the Policies webpage.

Admission may be deferred for up to one year but be aware that Scholarship and Fellowship offers may not be deferred to a future term. For more information please check the Policies webpage.
