Application Deadlines

Priority Deadline: January 15 (FALL) & June 30 (SPRING) | The priority deadline for all international students is January 15 for all Fall applicants and June 30 for all Spring applicants. International students that apply by the priority deadline will have the most flexibility in submitting documents and credentials to the University. Using outside credential evaluation services such as WES is STRONGLY encouraged. However, students that apply by the priority deadline will not be required to use such a service.

General Application Deadline: April 15 (FALL) & September 30 (SPRING) | The general deadline for all international students is April 15 for Fall applicants and September 30 for Spring applicants. International students that apply AFTER the priority deadline will be required to use a credential evaluation service to submit transcripts, degree certificates, and academic credentials.

Applying using the Priority Deadline ensures sufficient time for non-U.S. academic credentials to be reviewed for U.S. equivalency prior to admission consideration.  Furthermore, international applicants interested in being nominated for a fellowship or assistantship should submit their application materials by December 15.
