Application Deadlines

We process applications on a rolling admissions basis, meaning that we review and evaluate applications as they are submitted to our program rather than waiting until the deadline to begin the review process. We also award merit-based funding on a rolling basis, so it is to your advantage to apply early, as the availability of specific funding opportunities declines as the application season progresses.

Please use these recommended deadlines as guidelines for completing your application. Within two to four weeks of submitting a complete application, including all required supplementary materials, you will hear from the Admissions Committee regarding the outcome of its initial review.
