Semester For Best Consideration (Domestic Application) For Best Consideration (International Application)
Fall January 15, 2016 December 1, 2015

For international applicants the "best consideration date" is December 1. This date allows 1.5 months for the Graduate School to process foreign documents (e.g., transcripts) in international applications ahead of the general "best consideration date" on January 15. The general "best consideration date" for applications without foreign documents is January 15. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until May 1 each year. However, your application will miss the opportunity to be considered during the first round of review, which begins shortly after January 15. You may also miss the opportunity to be considered for funding because most funds are allocated in the first round of review. More details please see PhD application FAQ.
