We encourages students to apply early, to provide the best opportunity for informed decision making and financial aid. Applications are encouraged on a rolling basis and decisions for both fall and spring semesters are rolling. We do not have an application deadline, yet we encourage careful attention to aid, scholarship, and enrollment deadlines.
Our application review begins in September for spring semester enrollment (semester beginning in January) and November for fall semester enrollment (semester beginning in the end of August). All decisions are notified by email on a rolling basis. When your application and all required materials are submitted, we do our best to send you notification of our decision in 7-10 business days. Some applications require further information beyond the general application. These instances include applications to the following departments:
