Submitting Application

Complete the University of Minnesota online Graduate School Application

The Graduate School requires all applicants to complete their application online. All materials are submitted electronically through the online application system. Admission decisions are communicated to applicants using this system.

A decision for admission notice will be emailed to you once your application is carefully reviewed by the program's admission committee and your transcripts and any credentials (test reports, diploma copies, etc.) are authenticated by Graduate School officials. You can expect a decision by late March or early April.

Application Process


December 15 is the application deadline for applicants who wish to be considered for financial aid. Applications received by December 15 will be given priority consideration for admission and financial support. Applications received after December 15 will be considered on a space and funds available basis. March 15 is the final application deadline, though we strongly urge applicants to submit their application well before this deadline.
