The application deadlines for the graduate program are:

  • December 15 for admission for the Fall semester
  • October 1 for admission for the Spring semester

These deadlines are strictly enforced. This is due to several reasons, among them that all of our PhD students are fully supported and we need to plan our financial aid as well as to allow time for international students to obtain visas. Also, keep in mind that the overwhelming majority of the students enters the program in the Fall semester.
