If you are applying after the graduate school deadline (July 1 for Fall; November 1 for Spring), the system will only allow you to apply for the following fall or spring semester.
Late applicants may apply as “non-degree seeking” and pay an additional application fee. If approved by the Graduate School deadline, they may register for classes. An official transcript confirming the award of a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution is required for non-degree admission. Applicants are still required to submit the paperwork shown above. The non-degree seeking deadline is typically 2 weeks before classes begin. Check with the Graduate School for the actual deadline.
