Admission & Fellowship Application Deadlines

Admission & Fellowship Application Deadlines

Please read the following information about our deadline categories very carefully. The deadline by which you submit your application determines if and when your application will be reviewed by the graduate program. Please note that not all graduate programs use all deadline categories.

Applications close after 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Time) on the day of the deadline. UC Davis does not extend or waive application deadlines for any reason, including technical issues experienced by individual applicants. All applicants are encouraged to apply well in advance of the deadline.

Admission Deadlines

Priority Deadline - Applicants who submit their graduate application by the Priority Deadline will receive priority review for admission.

General Deadline - Applicants who submit their graduate application by the General Deadline (but after the Priority deadline) will be formally reviewed for admission by the graduate program but not on a priority basis.

Space Available Deadline - Applicants who submit their graduate application by the Space Available Deadline (but after the General Deadline) are not guaranteed to have their application reviewed by the graduate program. Their application will be reviewed only if the graduate program determines that they have additional space available after reviewing Priority and General Deadline applicants.

Transcripts, letters of recommendation, and test scores do *not* need to be received by the application deadline, but you should provide them as soon as possible after your application has been submitted.

Fellowship Deadlines

Prospective Student Fellowship Deadline - The deadline by which applicants must submit their graduate application (including the fellowship section) to be considered for Graduate Studies fellowships.

The letters of recommendation for prospective student fellowship applicants must be received no later than three business days following this deadline.

Continuing Student Fellowship Deadline - For current UC Davis graduate students only. Current students must submit the online fellowship application by this deadline to be considered for Graduate Studies fellowships.

The letters of recommendation for continuing student fellowship applicants must be received no later than Friday, December 4, 2015.
