International Application & Document Deadlines

International Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply as early in the application period as possible. Once the applicant has been admitted and an I-20 has been issued, it can take several weeks to obtain a visa.

Below are general international deadlines, but some academic programs may have earlier deadlines. Each graduate program may specify a different deadline and some programs accept applications in fall only.  See the Graduate Program Directory for which term each program typically accepts applications.  

The Department of Computer Science is not accepting applications for the MS Computer Science program for Spring 2023.
