Meeting Your Deadlines

Many graduate programs have earlier application deadlines than the Graduate School’s priority and final application deadlines listed below, and/or only consider applicants for specific semesters/terms.  Prospective students should refer to individual program websites for current deadline information, which can be accessed by clicking on the specific program of choice from the programs page.  Note that many graduate programs admit students and confirm their classes well before the Graduate School’s deadlines, so apply early.  The University may alter application dates well before the published deadlines without further notice in accordance with available resources and/or the enrollment limitation established by the North Carolina General Assembly.
