GPS Application Deadlines

Graduate Professional Studies is a selective academic and experiential learning program. Due to the limited number of spaces, the program has rolling admissions, which means candidates can submit an application anytime during one of our admission rounds.

Once an application is submitted, we will review it and notify you of our decision within 1 to 2 weeks. Candidates who receive an admission offer have approximately 3-4 weeks to place a deposit to join the program. The deposit deadline will be communicated via email and your admission letter.
