Important Dates & Checklist
The Office of Admissions evaluates applications and make decisions on a rolling basis throughout the year. We advise applicants to have a completed application submitted by the deadlines below.
|APPLICANT TYPE||SPRING (JANUARY)

Please note that there are no strict cut-off dates for when you need to submit your application; however, by submitting your completed application prior to these dates, you give yourself the best chance for a seat in the incoming class and sufficient time to process additional important paperwork (e.g., Visa paperwork for international candidates). The Office of Admissions will continue to review applications so long as there are seats available and enough time to adequately prepare you for the start of classes.
