Important Notice For Fall 2016 Applicants
We recently underwent a significant reorganization of our graduate application process. This centralization resulted in the newly formed Office of Graduate admissions. The Office of Graduate Admissions will be responsible for fall 2016 applicants onward using a new application system and process. If you are applying for spring 2016, your application will be processed by the Academic Unit in which your desired program resides. Please follow up directly with their offices and visit the unit’s website for information on the application process and deadlines.
