Important Dates and Deadlines

Application Deadlines

All programs with a December 1 pre-screening deadline have been extended until December 4, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern time). Please review your program's requirements to make sure you are uploading your materials by the appropriate deadline. 

24-48 hours after applying to the university, students will receive an email from UC Admissions (for undergraduates) or the Graduate School (for graduates) with the Application ID#. Applicants will need this number to gain access to upload pre-screening materials to Acceptd. 

Note: Due to the high volume of applicants, please allow the admissions staff time to manually update this requirement in your application portal. 

 Arts Administration has a later deadline of January 2.
