How to Apply & Deadlines

Graduate Admissions

For ALL Graduate Programs

Incomplete Applications

  • School of Education application deadlines are strict.
  • All application materials, including letters of recommendation and official test scores, must be received by the application deadline.  Applications that are incomplete after the deadline will NOT be reviewed for admission.
  • Applications to all programs are completed electronically. Applicants are responsible for monitoring their application status and ensuring that their application, and all electronic application materials, including letters of recommendation and matched official test scores, (if required by the program) is complete by the application deadline.
  • Test scores, if required by the program, must be matched to your application by the application deadline for your application to become complete. Scores only match to applications once submitted, which can take up to two weeks.

Application deadlines for individual programs are listed below.

For PhD, EdD, MAT, MA in Education and the MEd in School Counseling, please be sure to thoroughly read through the Graduate School’s Information for Applicants and the program specific application information details (Program & Degrees admissions deadlines).  Your program specific application information details page also acts as your program specific application instructions.  It is suggested that you print this information and have it available when you are progressing through the online application.

NOTE: Most of the financial support available to graduate students is based within individual programs. In addition, a limited amount of financial support is available from The Graduate School and is based upon nominations from individual programs. In order to allow sufficient time for your program to nominate you for Graduate School fellowships, your application (including all uploads and attached test scores) needs to be complete by December 1, 2018.
