What to expect after you apply

For applicants seeking autumn admission and financial assistance

The admission committee will evaluate submitted applications starting in the month of January. An admission recommendation will be made to the Graduate School before March 15. There is no need to contact the department to inquire about admission status before March 15.

If an applicant is recommended for admission, the Graduate School will inform the applicant of the admission. If an applicant does not receive an admission notification by March 15, the application may be in an on-hold status waiting for further evaluation. For all applicants in this category, an admission decision will be made by May 31.
