MSE & WE on-campus applications--The deadlines at the links above indicate latest deadlines for application to the term. Both on-campus programs begin reviewing applications for the coming Autumn admission in December of the prior year. In other words, we will begin reviewing applications for Autumn 2024 admission in December 2023.

We will continue to accept applications after December 2023. We will accept and review applications, and admit applicants, until we fill our projected Graduate Research Associate needs for Autumn 2024. This can be a time-consuming process, often stretching into March and beyond.
