It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the Department of English receives
all application materials by the deadline. Postmarks are not sufficient. Teaching assistantship applications must also be received at this time. We encourage
applicants to submit materials early, and it is their responsibility to ensure that everything arrives
by the deadline.
GRE scores can take six to eight weeks
to arrive after the test date. In order for your scores to arrive by January,
we suggest you take the GRE in October, but at the latest by the December test
date. You need to make
sure our Department of English is specified to receive scores, or further
delays may ensue.
Completed MA, MFA, PhD applications,
including teaching assistantship applications, are due January
Completed MATESOL applications, including
teaching assistantship applications, are due January 15.
MATESOL applications received by the
January 15 deadline are reviewed in a first round which fills most of the
available openings. MATESOL
applications received between January 15 and April 1 will
be reviewed for admission only. Students admitted in the April 1 round will not be guaranteed consideration for a teaching assistantship in their second year.
