Graduate Dates and Deadlines

Important dates and deadlines for graduate students can be found at NOTE: Application deadline for particular graduate programs may be earlier. Check individual programs for their deadlines.

Individual Graduate Program Application Deadlines

For students to be guaranteed consideration for admission into a graduate program, applications must be complete. All required materials must be submitted by the specified date. Incomplete applications will be held until all required materials have been received. Individual programs determine if an applicant’s file will be considered for review after the deadline. Applicants who wish to be considered for entry into a program for another term must submit a readmission application for the subsequent term. Submitted materials are retained for twelve (12) months from the original submission.

Please note: Admission to graduate studies consists of dual admission to the College of Graduate Studies and an individual graduate program for all degree-seeking students. Deadlines for application may differ for international and domestic students. Individual program deadlines may also differ from those of the College of Graduate Studies. Refer to the deadlines both within and following the University Calendar for details. When there are two deadlines stated, the earlier deadline takes precedent for receipt of all application materials at the College of Graduate Studies. Refer to the Glossary of Terms  for additional information.

Contact MTSU Testing Services ( for information on registering for all entrance exams.

NOTE: Application deadline for particular graduate programs may be earlier. Check individual programs for their deadlines.
