Notes:

1. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply by the Priority Deadline where applicable. Freshmen who apply by the Priority Deadline for the fall semester will receive best consideration for admission to the university, merit-based scholarships, and invitations to special programs. Transfer students who apply by the priority deadline for the fall or spring semesters will receive best consideration for admission to the university and consideration for merit-based scholarships. This is not an early-decision program; you will have until the date listed in the "Enrollment Confirmation Deadline" column to confirm your enrollment.

2. Applications received after the Regular Deadline will be considered on a rolling, space-available basis.

3. Freshman students who apply for the fall semester are automatically considered for spring admission.

4. International applicants include students who are not U.S. citizens or permanent U.S. residents and students with any non-U.S. academic records.
