Online application

Applications are submitted online through ASU Graduate Admissions.

Applications can be submitted beginning September 1, and the recommended deadline to be considered for funding is January 15 (when the admissions committee may start reviewing completed files). Applicants are encouraged to apply and send in documents as early as possible to ensure review of the application for full funding. All funding offers will be made before April 15th as part of the Counsel of Graduate Schools Resolution.

Applications that are submitted after January 15 and not complete with the necessary documents (e.g., missing letters of recommendation, GRE scores, or official transcripts) may not be considered in time for full funding and admissions by the Graduate Admissions Review Committee. All documents must be submitted through the Graduate College Admissions for processing.
