Rolling Admissions and Deadlines

Our faculty are committed to accepting a student body that is academically prepared for graduate work. They also strive to ensure that enough courses are offered during each semester to meet the needs of our students. Therefore, at KU, we have deadlines:

For fall enrollment: August 1

For spring enrollment: December 1

For summer enrollment: May 1

Most programs will evaluate completed applications ahead of those deadline dates to establish incoming classes or cohorts. They return admissions decisions in about one business week and decisions are shared electronically. Applicants can then accept their decision through the KU student portal.
