International students must have all information completed by July 15 to enter fall semester, November 10 for spring semester, or April 1 for summer semester. However, international applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible to allow adequate time for mailing delays, obtaining a visa, and making travel arrangements. Exceptions to the above deadlines will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
