The Graduate College Handbook

for students, faculty and staff – August 2018

A. Graduate Admission Policies

  1. Application Materials
    The Graduate College follows the University rules about how admissions information is shared and how decisions are made. See the Admissions Task Force Report for details.
  2. Graduate Admissions Deadline Policy
    The Graduate College application and admissions deadline is the 10th day of classes for each admission term. Graduate departments may apply earlier deadlines for each term for those applying to their degree programs. However, applications received by the Graduate College after the 10th day of classes will be reviewed on a case by case basis considering both the applicant’s credentials and the departmental justification for the late admission.
  3. Graduate Student Application for Admission Fee
    An applicant for graduate admission who wishes to change the desired term of entry either before or after receiving a Notice of Admission must contact the admitting department to request the change. If the applicant is requesting to defer the entry term for more than one year, a second application fee will be required by the Graduate College.
