International Education & Global Engagement
  • Deadlines vary according to major and class level. 

    You will receive an email following application submission that will instruct you to send in supporting documents.

    As international applicants requiring a student visa to study at our university will need additional time to prepare for their departure, we have set early application and document deadlines, which will enable us to process applications in a timely manner. Each graduate program may specify a different deadline; therefore, it is important to check the departmental website for further information.
