The Graduate Application is submitted electronically; the online application becomes available in September for admission effective the following year. See the Graduate Division website for details. All applicants must use the online application.
ALL APPLICATIONS FOR FALL 2017 ADMISSION MUST BE SUBMITTED ON OR BEFORE: DECEMBER 5, 2016.
Applicants will submit unofficial transcripts, GRE scores, etc. on-line as part of the application. Admitted students will be required to submit two copies of all official transcripts in envelopes sealed by the issuing institutions at a later date.
Foreign applicants are urged to examine closely the requirements for certification and translation of records provided by Graduate Application and the information on legal residency and fees. International students with F-1 or J-1 visas must pay nonresident tuition every semester of graduate study ($15,102.00 per year) in addition to instate fees ($14,984.50 per year). Doctoral candidates, however, may be eligible for a reduction in nonresident tuition (NRT) for three years after advancement to Ph.D. candidacy. See the Graduate Degrees office for more information on reduced NRT. Since TOEFL scores take 6 to 8 weeks to be mailed after you request the Educational Testing Service to report them to us, students should report their score on the on-line application. This will allow the Admission Committee to begin their review of the file immediately. (Note: An official report must still be submitted to the department from Educational Testing Service before a student can be admitted.)
Within two to three weeks after the application deadline the department will email you, acknowledging receipt of the application and indicating any documents that have not yet been received. Please be sure to list your e-mail address when submitting your online Application.
