Admission Dates and Deadlines for Domestic Students

Your completed application packet must be received by the appropriate deadline for regular admission consideration. Applications completed after the deadline will still be processed normally, but we cannot guarantee a decision will be made in time for your desired entry term. Late applicants may be eligible to defer their application or admission to a subsequent term.

If a deadline falls on a Saturday or Sunday, applications completed by the following Monday will be considered to have met the deadline.

Academic Calendar

* Every applicant who meets this deadline is automatically considered for graduate fellowships, scholarships, and teaching and research assistantships awarded by individual academic departments. Departmental funding is awarded to a limited number of highly qualified, full-time students at the time of admission. If you receive a funding award, you will be notified of the award in your official admission letter. Priority deadline is encouraged for students looking to secure their spot at Illinois Tech sooner rather than later.
