Application Process

Deadline: March 15

Applications open in early September for the following fall. All students begin the program in the fall (September); there is no option to start in spring. Admission is rolling, which means we may accept some students before the March 15 deadline. No applications can be accepted after March 15. You will be notified by the Graduate School if you are admitted. We expect to contact admitted and waitlisted applicants by the end of March.

Please provide unofficial (scanned) copies of your transcripts as part of the electronic application. You will be prompted to mail an official copy of your transcript if you accept an offer of admission.
