Summary of Deadlines & Requirements
A summary of graduate application deadlines and requirements for programs housed within the Graduate School is directly below. Applicants seeking admission to a specific program should apply via the online application link associated with that program (see summary below). In many cases, academic departments have indicated firm application deadlines. Only completed applications, with supporting materials, will be forwarded by Howard's Office of Admissions (a separate Office from the Graduate School) to your prospective degree program, whose faculty will render a decision on your application. No applicant will be admitted without the recommendation of an academic unit. Also, consider the following deadlines for filing a timely application:
- Departmental deadlines for admission and consideration of assistantship funding from departmental sources. Applicants must contact the academic departments to determine these departmental deadlines.
Graduate School deadline for new applicants seeking assistantship consideration through Graduate School competitive funding.
