The three doctoral programs and the master's program in rhetoric and composition admit new students for the fall semester only; applications must be complete by January 15 (i.e., the application deadline for fall 2014 consideration is January 15, 2014). The master's programs in creative writing, literature, linguistics, TESOL, TESOL/linguistics, and general have "rolling admissions" and are reviewed throughout the year. Although they review applications at any time, the M.A. programs in linguistics, TESOL, and TESOL/linguistics admit students only for Fall; M.A. programs in creative writing, literature, and general English admit students in Spring, Summer and Fall.
Assistantships deadline: If you wish to be considered for an assistantship, complete your application by January 15.
