Application Deadlines

Application deadlines are set to help you complete the application process in a timely manner. While some Binghamton programs accept applications on a rolling basis, you are strongly encouraged to submit all required application materials, including official test scores, prior to the recommended application deadline for your program. 

Application deadlines vary by program and across fall and spring semesters. Note that some programs set earlier deadlines for applicants who wish to be considered for funding.

A rolling deadline indicates that the academic department will review applications as they are submitted, rather than after a set deadline. The department will continue to make admissions decisions until the program is either full or up until the day prior to the start of classes for the given semester. Applications submitted after the start of classes for the given semester are subject to either administrative withdrawal or deferral to a future semester. We encourage you to review the application deadlines below carefully and also take a moment to review the University‚Äôs Academic Calendar. While there is no absolute deadline, the Office of Graduate Admissions encourages you to submit your application materials as soon as possible, as earlier submission facilitates earlier decisions.
