Applicationsare processed on a rolling basis and are considered as they are received for each of our terms. We recommend submitting all material required for admission at least 30 days prior to the start of the term you wish to begin.  Earlier application will ensure the best scheduling options, as some course sections may become unavailable. 

Terms are 8 weeks in length with two start dates in both the fall (late August and mid-October) and spring (mid-January and mid-March) semesters. 

The online application can be submitted with no application fee.
