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.
