Although the Department considers applications on a rolling basis, all decisions about funding for the next academic year are made in February. Therefore, the Department strongly encourages applicants to submit their University application by Jan. 15th since processing applications takes time. Applicants will not be considered until all materials, including transcripts, GRE scores, and letters, have been forwarded by the University to the department.
