Deadlines

Applications must be complete in the Graduate and International Admissions Center (GIAC) by January 1 for fall admissions (see online application).

GIAC will forward a copy of your application and GRE/TOEFL scores to the EER graduate office. Applications received after these priority deadlines will likely not be considered by our admissions committee. 

You are strongly encouraged to complete the online application well in advance of the actual deadline. Once submitted online, the application can still take up to two weeks to reach the department, so you should not wait until the deadline to apply.
