Application deadlines are set by the Graduate Admissions Office, not by the MS in DFOR program. The deadlines for the upcoming semester are published by that office.
Submitting Your Application
It is important that you submit your application for admission in a timely manner. The exact deadlines are published by the admissions office. Generally, domestic students should have their completed application submitted by December 15th for Spring admissions and by June 1st to begin studies in the Fall semester. Earlier deadlines apply for International students. If you cannot meet these deadlines, you may consider beginning your studies in non-degree status.
Your application is submitted on-line and you will be required to pay an application fee. You will also receive detailed information for mailing your application documents. Note that your application will not be reviewed until your application is complete. Therefore it is important that you submit all required documents in a timely manner.
