Admission Deadlines

Spring 2016 Admission Deadline

The Standard Deadline for Spring 2016 semester has passed.

January 15, 2016 is the LAST day to submit an online application for Spring 2016. No applications received after this date will be considered. Supporting admission materials, such as transcripts, financial documents, etc., must be received by February 1, 2016.

Late admission requests will be considered on a case by case basis with priority given to applicants who attended International Orientation on both January 11 & 12, 2016. 

Late admission consideration is only available to individuals who are already in the U.S. in valid, F-1 visa status and who complete the additional steps specified in the Late Admission Request (PDF, 97KB) procedure. If admission is not complete before the Spring 2016 semester begins on January 19, applicants must also submit the late admission checklist, which requires instructor signatures to confirm attendance in classes that have already begun.

It is important for online international applications to be completed as quickly as possible, since Spring 2016 course enrollment and orientation events have already begun since November, which means that degree program and course options are becoming increasingly limited. The later a complete application is received, the fewer degree program and course options there will be remaining.

Please note that it is too late for applicants who need to apply for the F-1 visa, since it can take over 3 months to be approved of a change of visa status in the U.S. or to obtain an F-1 interview appointment abroad at a U.S. Embassy. To ensure enough time for the visa application process, applicants who need to apply for the F-1 visa should consider applying for the Fall 2016 semester.

The Spring 2016 semester begins January 19, 2016.

Limited Summer 2016 Admission

Due to limited course availability during the summer term, admission to Summer (year) will be granted on a space available basis and offered only to individuals with prior experience studying at the higher education level in the United States. The summer session begins June 22, 2016. The Application Deadline for Summer (year) is (mid-May). 

Fall 2016 Admission

Applicants may begin applying for the Fall 2016 semester, which begins on August 29, 2016.
