Application Deadlines


It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the Department of English receives all application materials by the deadline. 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.
January 2
Completed MA, MFA, PhD applications are due January 2.
January 15
Completed MATESOL applications are due January 15.
April 1
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.

Applicants may wish to visit Student Financial Aid for information on deadlines for need-based aid.
