Graduate programs may have a deadline specific to their program area.  Those deadlines are published in the Program Deadline section on this page.   For programs without a listed deadline, the deadlines directly below apply.
International Applicants applying from outside the US:                                

Fall admission:        April 1                             
Spring admission:    August 1         

US Citizens or International Students residing in the US:
Fall admission:   July 15
Spring admission: December 1

Please note that due to the lack of entry level coursework during the Summer semesters, most graduate programs do not admit new international students for the Summer, unless the program specifically admits ONLY for Summer semesters.


The following dates are the deadlines for submission of complete application materials for programs which have specific deadlines of their own.  In cases where the departmental deadline is earlier than the Graduate School deadline, you must meet the departmental deadline.  If the departmental deadline is later than the Graduate School deadline, you must meet the Graduate School deadline.  If no deadline is listed for a specific semester, that means the program does not admit for that semester.
