Applications are processed on a rolling basis as they are received for each of our start terms. Although most programs do not have deadlines, we recommend submitting all application materials at least 30 days prior to the start date for the term you wish to begin. Earlier application is encouraged and will ensure the best scheduling options since some course sections may become unavailable.
