Admissions criteria, procedures and deadlines for graduate programs vary by individual program. Current information about graduate admissions can be found on the Graduate Admissions page of the Graduate College website.

In order to allow sufficient time to process applications and immigration documents for international applicants, the Graduate College recommends that applicants submit their application and supporting materials as early as possible. Although deadlines posted by the program may be different, international applicants must submit their documents by the deadlines indicated on the International Graduate Admissions page found on the Graduate College website.

Admission Tests

Information about admission tests is available from the GRE website or from the Educational Testing Service, P.O. Box 6103, Princeton, NJ 08541-6103 for the Graduate Record Examinations Test, or from the official GMAT website for the Graduate Management Admission Test. Those considering application to a graduate program that requires an admissions test must plan for the four to six weeks it can take for the Graduate College to receive the results of test scores.

Applicants must consult the listing of the program to which they are applying to determine exactly which test scores are required, if any. Scores must be from tests taken within five years of the date of application.

If a prospective student's native or first language is not English, scores must be submitted from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL); the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), academic version; or the Duolingo English Test.
