Application Deadlines

Once you decide to apply to graduate business school be sure to pay close attention to the deadlines. The McCoy College of Business graduate programs admit new students in both the fall and spring semesters (with the exception of the MSMRA and Cohort MBA programs, which only admit new students in the fall).

The deadline to begin an application for fall admission is June 1, and the deadline to begin an application for spring admission is October 1. Please note that as long as you have started your application and paid your application fee by June 1/October 1, all other application documents may be submitted later (if additional time is needed). The tables below explain the deadline schedule:

The "Priority Deadline" offers fall applicants the opportunity to apply for scholarships and fellowships prior to officially starting the program. In order to meet the fall Priority Deadline, applicants must complete their entire application no later than January 15. Please note that meeting this deadline has no impact on your overall chances of admission; it relates only to the ability to apply for scholarships and fellowships if you are offered admission to a McCoy graduate program. There is no priority deadline for spring applicants due to the fact that the scholarship/fellowship process begins in January, so students starting in the spring have the opportunity to immediately apply for scholarships at the beginning of their first semester.

The McCoy College of Business graduate programs operates a rolling admissions process. This means that as soon as your application is complete–regardless of the deadline–it will be reviewed quickly, usually within one week, and you will be notified of your admissions status the following week. While not always the case, the normal notification period is about 10-12 business days following the completion of your application to graduate school.
