Dates & Deadlines

Admission Application Deadlines

Applicants who are not applying through our Early Decision process are strongly encouraged to apply early in the admissions cycle, preferably by March 1. As files are reviewed and offers of admission made during the admissions process, the number of remaining spots in the class will be fewer and selectivity for the remaining spots may become more competitive. We will continue to make offers until the class is full, which may occur prior to the application deadline. For this reason we encourage applicants to apply as early as they are able to. Scholarship funds may not be as available later in the admissions process. Review of completed applications submitted for Regular Admissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis and will begin in January, after the completion of the Early Decision I and Early Decision II admissions cycles. For guidance on compiling your application materials and the submission process, you may want to view this video.
