- Priority Deadlines – primary date that programs use to begin reviewing applications and used by some programs where funding is often associated with an offer of admission. Applicants who submit and complete their application by a priority deadline are considered for financial awards prior to those who submit after the priority deadline.
- Graduate School – this is the standard deadline used to accept applications. NOTE: Some programs may adhere to their Priority Deadline only. Please contact your program of interest to confirm the application deadline they prefer.
- International Students – there is no set deadline but students should allow an additional one (1) to two (2) months prior to the listed deadlines for processing of VISA or other required paperwork.
Some programs require the GRE as a test requirement. ETS provides a GRE Fee Reduction Program for individuals with demonstrated financial need and for national programs supporting underrepresented groups. Those who receive a fee voucher also receive free access to some test preparation materials.
