Ph.D. Admissions

Ph.D. Admissions Process

Because of the time required to process an international application and the time required for you to make visa and financial arrangements, the following deadlines have been established for receipt of all admissions materials.

  • Entering Term:                Fall
  • Application Deadline:    December 15 (Both Domestic and International Applicants)

Your application will not be processed until ALL credentials are received in the Office of Admissions. For each institution attended, you must submit official transcript(s) and official degree/diploma statement(s), if applicable, in the original language as well as official English translations. All documents become the property of the University. Credentials of applicants who do not enroll will be destroyed and cannot be returned or forwarded elsewhere. All admissions materials must be received by this deadline.

Assistantships/Fellowships – March 15th.

When submitting your application online, please e-mail Admissions and Enrollment Coordinator Daressa Howard Hope at, so she can print it out and add it to your application materials.
