How to Apply: Application Deadlines

Group of students walking on a CSU campusApplication Deadlines
Please submit your completed application materials prior to the general filing period deadlines. Applicants who have not been granted an admission decision by the appropriate deadline date may NOT be reviewed for admission the next semester. Students must reapply if their application is not processed for the semester to which they applied.

Application Filing Periods
A postbaccalaureate application filed during the initial open filing period (defined as the months of October/November for the following fall semester and August for the following spring semester, respectively) will be given every consideration for admission. Some departments/programs have earlier deadlines than the university deadlines or do not accept applications for spring admission. For specific department or program filing deadlines, contact the department.

Application Status
Please note that once all documents are received, it usually takes six to eight weeks or longer to process applications and to notify the student of a decision regarding admission. Check with the university's office of graduate admissions for the status of your application.

Applicants are encouraged to contact the graduate office to introduce themselves and discuss admission and the program.
