  • April 1 for the following Spring semester

  • October 1 for the following Fall semester
International Students:

International applicants are encouraged to apply early to all programs due to time constraints of issuing the I-20.  Admission applications could be automatically deferred to the following term if the application is received late in the semester.  All official documents are required before sending to the department for an admission decision (two week time frame depending on program deadline).
