Graduate Applications FAQs

You must log in to the online application system to check the status of your application.

Although you may have submitted all the required materials, it is a manual process to match your submitted materials with your online application. Please note that this may take a few business days.

You may not have clicked the “Submit” button. After you complete the online portion of your application, please be sure to click the “Submit” button located at the top of the application page. Otherwise, we will not be able to move your application forward in the review process.

The application fee cannot be waived or refunded.

Decision notifications will be posted to the application portal. For the fall start term, master’s and certificate applications completed before February 1st will be reviewed beginning in early February and decisions will be posted mid-March. For the master’s and certificate programs that continue to accept applications until the final deadlines of May 1 (for international applicants) and August 1 (for domestic applicants), the committees will review completed applications monthly throughout the spring and early summer.


Application deadlines are available here.

Special students are enrolled on a part-time basis and cannot exceed more than 2 courses per semester. A maximum of twelve semester hours over time may be earned prior to applying to a degree program. Please refer to the applicable materials required and deadlines for special students.
