Every deadline you need to know

February 1 is the application deadline, every year, to begin the program in the Fall semester of the same year. There is only one application deadline per year and one intake per year, which is in the Fall. No Spring intake.

Notification: If you haven't heard anything yet, then you're still under consideration. We aim to notify everyone by the end of May, but sometimes applicants remain under consideration a little longer.

Please don't call or email the MFA office to check the status of your application, as we won't have anything to tell you beyond what's written here. As soon as we have info, we'll contact you.
