Application Deadlines

For the Fall 2017 admissions cycle, the application deadline is December 1, 2016. The online application will be available on September 1, 2016. You may start the application process here:

You can submit your application before your letter writers have submitted their letters of recommendation, and you can submit without GRE scores if they are not yet available.

The application fee is $75. If you submit your application by October 31, 2016, the $75 application fee will be waived. The fee will automatically be waived as long as the application is submitted by midnight (U.S. Pacific Time) on October 31. Official scores and letters of recommendation may arrive later.

Applicants selected for an interview will be notified by early January. Our annual recruitment weekend, for invited applicants only, is February 2-4, 2017.
