Application materials due by December 31 include transcripts, 3 letters of recommendation and test scores. We may need to contact applicants if information is missing, so please include a working e-mail address. Please remember that it is your responsibility to make sure that your own application is complete and on time. While the Graduate School requests letters of recommendation from faculty, we will accept at least one from an employer if you are coming back to school, from the workplace.
Please register your recommenders as early as possible to give them time to submit their letters. While letters of recommendation are also due by the strict deadline of December 31, do not wait for your recommenders to submit their recommendations before submitting your completed application as recommendations are matched by the system when you submit your application.
Applicants should receive a response from us by March 15. Due to the large number of candidates, it is not possible for us to inform applicants if their applications are incomplete, or give other information during the review process. If you have already submitted your application, you can find out how to check the status of your application by checking the graduate school site.
All information and questions regarding your electronic application should be directed to the Graduate Admission Office. For technical application issues you should contact ApplyWeb. The ApplyWeb Help Desk is available from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Pacific Time. If you are having difficulty applying online email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. Please allow 24 hours for a response. When contacting the Help Desk, please include your user name or order ID number, full name, email address and phone number. If you suspect a problem with your GRE/TOEFL test scores, please contact Educational Testing Services directly.
Admitted students will need to respond by April 15. On-campus housing will be guaranteed only to students whose completed housing application has been received by the University by the reply deadline of April 15.
