Admission Deadlines

There is no university deadline for applications to graduate studies set by the College of Graduate Studies and Research. We accept admission recommendations from academic units throughout the year.

Academic units set their own deadlines for applications. You should check with the Academic Unit that has your program to see if they have a deadline for new applications. Click here to search for program deadlines and contact information.

Funding Deadlines

Academic units make decisions on scholarship and fellowships at set times during the year. These vary from unit to unit and may be different from application deadlines. To be certain that you apply in sufficient time to be considered for funding, you should check with the Academic Unit that has your program to see if they have a deadline for funding consideration.

The majority of funding applications for new students, including teaching and research fellowships, Deans’ scholarships and others, are first considered by the academic unit. There are some funding opportunities that are administered by CGSR or other agencies. Check the listings under Funding on this site for full details and contact information.

International Student Deadlines

Funding Deadlines Although there are no fixed university deadlines for international student applications to graduate studies, some special programs have separate deadlines. There are separate deadlines for applications for students from China or from Vietnam who may be eligible for scholarships available through special partnership agreements between the College of Graduate Studies and Research and these countries. Other international students should check with the department to see if any special deadlines apply in their case.
