The Priority Consideration Deadline for Spring 2016 semester is November 9, 2015.
Submitting a complete application packet by this date is recommended for all applicants. Admission by the priority deadline allows for the best course options available to new students, who may begin Spring 2016 class registration shortly after this deadline. This deadline is especially recommended 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 submit applications as early as possible.
The Spring 2016 semester begins on January 19, 2016.
