Application Deadlines

See the chart below for a full list of application deadlines for School of Education programs.

A note about our "deadline" dates:

The School of Education faculty review applications on a rolling basis, so some programs DO FILL prior to the posted "deadline." Applications are reviewed in the order they are received, and an interview may be required. A decision is typically made within 4 to 8 weeks of receipt of all application materials.

As such, the "deadline" is merely the last date USF can guarantee a speedy faculty review of an application for a particular program. To ensure your application is reviewed for admission in the semester desired, you are strongly encouraged to apply prior to the "deadline."


We recommend that you send your application as early as possible to ensure receipt of a timely written admission decision. Applications received after the deadline dates listed below will be reviewed as faculty reviewers are available and on a space-available basis.



Applications are evaluated after ALL required documents have been received.
