Spring/Summer Application Deadlines All for Domestic or International Online Applicants

When and How to Apply to ISD Programs

ISD conducts a holistic review of all applications on a rolling basis throughout the year and admits students for each term: Fall (August), Winter (January), and Spring/Summer (May). Submitting your application by the deadlines below will determine your eligibility for ISD scholarships and the timeline of admission decisions. Applicants will receive an admissions decision within 6-8 weeks of the posted deadline.

Students are encouraged to review and consider each deadline carefully to ensure they have adequate time to prepare a complete application: if an application is incomplete by the Extended Consideration deadline, the applicant must re-apply for a future term and pay that application fee. See Application Materials for details. International students are highly encouraged to apply for the Early Decision deadline, as it may require extra time to collect the necessary documentation for visa paperwork after admissions.

Domestic, U.S. Permanent Resident, and International students wishing to begin their ISD Program on-campus should apply for Fall or Winter. ISD has online course offerings in Spring/Summer, applicants who wish to consider this option should contact isd-questions@umich.edu to learn more.
