PhD Applicant Deadlines

Nearly all PhD students to the department are admitted to start in the Fall semester, and the deadline for both domestic and international students is December 15. Applicants for the PhD who have a special reason to start in spring or summer semesters should first contact the department.

FOR 2022 ADMISSION: The department understands that some students are not able to take the GRE subject test due to COVID19 concerns, and welcomes applications without this test.

Masters in Mathematics and Masters in Statistics Deadlines

The Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science admits qualified students on a competitive basis to its masters programs each semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer). International applicants new to the university are usually admitted in the Fall term only, due to the time required to issue I-20. To receive full consideration, all application materials must be received by these deadlines:

  • December 15th for Fall semester admission (domestic and international)
  • October 1st for Spring semester (domestic applicants only)
  • March 15th for Summer semester (domestic applicants only)

While MS students may be considered for tuition and fee waivers, teaching assistant positions are generally reserved for our PhD students.
