Admission to the PhD program is granted for the fall term only. The admissions committee reviews applications each spring for the following fall semester.
Applications can be submitted beginning in mid-September, and the deadline for the completed application and all supporting materials is January 15.
You are encouraged to apply as early as possible. The ASU Graduate College will notify you in writing of the admissions committee decisions. There is no guarantee you will receive a response on or before a specific date. Offers of financial assistance cannot be deferred.
