Admission

The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences welcomes your interest in applying for admission and will facilitate the review of your credentials by the appropriate department or program.  The online application is available as of September 1 each year.  Admissions decisions are typically communicated from February through April.  Acceptance of the offer of admission is due to the Graduate School by April 15.  Pending offers may be withdrawn after this date.

All applicants to doctoral programs are considered for a standard aid package that includes five years of stipend support and payment of tuition, fees and student health insurance.  Support is provided through a combination of fellowships and teaching and research assistantships.  Select applicants are nominated by their departments for enhanced graduate fellowships.  Certain master’s programs also provide financial support to enrolled students.
