Perhaps you identified a program and you would like to apply. Generally, applications may be due in the winter to start the following fall. For example, if you submitted an application due in January, you are looking to start classes in August or September of the same year.
While all applications differ, these are some components that may be required. You may need to submit your application to two or three different offices within the same institution. Some kind of in-person interview or presentation may be required as well. Each program and institution should provide detailed instructions on how to submit an application. Always review relevant web sites before submitting questions to program faculty and administrators.
Completing applications can be an exciting process! You are on your way
to your graduate education! But remember, you do not need to rush, and
if you do hurry through the application process, you may make mistakes
that hinder your acceptance to the program. Admission decisions may take several weeks or months after you submit your application. Be patient.
