ISD Admissions Deadlines

ISD Admissions Deadlines

ISD conducts a holistic review of all applications on a rolling basis throughout the year and admits students for each term: Fall, Winter, and Spring/Summer. 

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 who wish to pursue their ISD degree on campus must apply for the stated deadlines in the table below, as it may require extra time to collect necessary documentation for visa paperwork after admissions.

Regular Admission:  Students are strongly encouraged to apply by the regular deadline for the term they wish to enter, which will enable them to be considered for ISD financial aid and scholarship opportunities. Admissions decisions will be released approximately 6-8 weeks from the application deadline.

Early Decision:  Students who would like a decision earlier may apply by this deadline (will be considered for ISD financial aid and scholarship opportunities). Admissions decisions will be released approximately 6-8 weeks from the application deadline.

Extended Consideration:  Applications will be accepted up to this deadline, but may not be considered for ISD financial aid or scholarship opportunities. Note there is an earlier deadline for on-campus international students in order to process the necessary documentation. Admissions decisions will be released approximately 2-4 weeks from the application deadline.
