Prospective international students should apply at least six months before the semester in which they wish to enroll. This allows enough time to receive and consider all the materials that are part of the application. In addition, this allows enough time for students to apply for their student visa.

The I-20 will not be issued until after a student is admitted and the required financial support information is received.  After a student is admitted, they should monitor their email for instructions on completing the I-20 process.
