Application Deadlines

Application Deadlines:  The Graduate Committee reads applications 3-4 times each semester and once in the summer.  If you would like to begin taking courses in our program in either May or August 2012, please submit your application materials by one of the following deadlines:

February 21 to be voted on during the March 7 Graduate Committee meeting.

March 21 to be voted on during the April 4 Graduate Committee meeting.  It is very much to your advantage to submit your application materials on or before this date. If you are accepted by April 5, you can then be advised and register for courses at the same time as all the other students in our program. This gives you a better shot at finding openings in the classes you want for the coming semester, especially if you plan to take online courses.

April 18 to be voted on during the May 2 Graduate Committee meeting.  This is the last chance to be admitted for the Summer 2012 semester.

July 11 to be voted on during the July 21 Graduate Committee meeting. This is the last chance to be admitted for the Fall 2012 semester.

You will be notified of our decision within two weeks of the meeting date.
