Application Deadlines

Your completed application packet must be received by the appropriate deadline below for regular admission consideration. Applications completed after the deadline still will be processed normally, but we cannot guarantee a decision will be made in time for your desired entry term. Late applicants may be eligible to defer their application or admission to a subsequent term.

If a deadline falls on a Saturday or Sunday, applications completed by the following Monday will be considered to have met the deadline.
