Before you Apply

Graduate School Master/Certificate Application Deadlines


Master’s Level

Applicants for admission as master’s degree-seeking, special, or non-degree-seeking students may apply for admission as early as nine months before the beginning of the semester in which they wish to begin graduate study. Because of the time needed to prepare graduate summaries, applicants are encouraged to have their admission file completed at least one month before the application deadline.


Master application deadlines may vary by program. Please consult the list below for  your program of interest.  Applicants should also note some programs grant admission only for the fall semester.  Some master’s programs may have priority application deadlines.
 

It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure completion and submission of application, a nonrefundable application fee, and all required supporting documents are on file with the Graduate School by the appropriate application deadline.

* Priority Deadline

D - Domestic/Permanent Resident Deadline

I - International Deadline

 

When the published deadline falls on a weekend, the application remains open until 5:00 PM Central Time Zone (U.S.) on the following open business day.

All applications are to be submitted by 5:00 PM Central Time Zone (U.S.).
