The Graduate Admissions team is working through several Slate migration challenges and anticipates that most of the issues should be fully addressed and reconciled by Dec. 4. As a result, we are extending the 2022 Spring semester deadline for applicants to doctoral, master’s, and certificate programs from Dec. 1 to Dec. 20. Please know that prospective students who are currently out of the country and need an F or J visa to enroll may simply not have sufficient time to apply, be considered for admission, be admitted, and complete the process to obtain an I-20 and a visa prior to the last day to enroll in the spring semester.
The first Spring 2022 enrollment report is now available on GPDNet. The report, which will be updated weekly, may be downloaded in the GPDNet Graduate School Data section.
The total graduate enrollment goal for Spring 2022 is 5,917 students.
