Why are there multiple deadlines for scholarship consideration?
You can apply to our programs at any time during the year. We receive the bulk of our applications for fall admission from late autumn through early spring. After an application is received, an admissions decision will usually be made within 4-6 weeks. All admitted applications are then eligible for merit based scholarship consideration. The committee that awards the merit scholarship funds for fall admission reviews the files 3 times during an enrollment season: December 1 (for applications received before that date), February 1 (for the next batch of admitted applicants), and March 1 (the final review). Likewise, for spring admission there is a similar enrollment season with the same process but with only one deadline: October 1.
If you aren't concerned about receiving a merit based scholarship, submit your application at any time. If you are interested in receiving a merit based scholarship, please make sure that you submit it before the review dates.
