Application Process and Requirements

You are welcome to apply to our program at any time, but please take note that over 90% of our students complete their application during the period of October-December for admission the following August. Review of applications for August admission begins January 1, with our first round of financial offers decided by February 1. If you want maximum consideration for financial assistance for an August admission, you must have a completed application and ensure all documents (transcripts, recommendations, test scores) have been received by December 1. We will not begin a review of an application until all of the required materials have been received. Most financial offer letters are sent to students during the period February 1-April 15. However, as new funding opportunities arise, a number of financial offers are occasionally sent to well-qualified students in May, June and July.
