Application Deadlines

To be considered for admission, applicants are responsible for garnering and submitting all necessary application materials by the designated graduate program application deadlines.

Many programs offer various entry points and will accept applications for fall, spring, and summer admission. However, few only accept applications for fall admission. Please be sure to visit the academic web pages of the program(s) you are interested in. There, you will find more specific information regarding program options and admission requirements.

For the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program and the Master of Occupational Therapy program, the preferred application deadline is December 1st. The final application deadline is April 1st.

For all other programs, we offer rolling admissions which means we evaluate applications throughout the year. However we strongly encourage you to apply by July 15th (Fall term entry), November 15th (Spring term entry) and April 15th (Summer term entry) to provide sufficient time to plan and prepare to begin the program. Once the application is complete, an admissions decision is typically made within 2-4 weeks.

Some students may wish to "try out" a few courses, meet professors, and evaluate prospective programs prior to applying. Please note that some Master's programs will allow qualified students to take courses as a non-matriculated student. Non-matriculated graduate students may take up to nine graduate credits before the College requires them to declare their academic intentions. Any qualified student interested in taking graduate-level coursework as a non-matriculated student is encouraged to contact the Office of Graduate Admissions at 413.205.3700 for more information.
