Admissions Decisions

Admissions decisions are made on a continuous basis on completed applications.

Applications will not be deemed "complete" - and no admissions decision will be made - until all application materials listed above are submitted.

Applicants may apply for fall semester admission, with a completion deadline of July 15. As the processing of student visas is often time-consuming, international students are strongly encouraged to submit their application by June 1 for fall admission and by November 1 for spring admission.
