The online application process for the Allen School’s Computer Science & Engineering Ph.D. program opens annually on September 1. Applications are accepted for admission for autumn quarter only. The deadline for both international and U.S. students is December 15, or the next following business day, if the 15th falls on a weekend. Applications received by the deadline will be considered for admission the following autumn quarter.
All application materials must be received electronically by the December deadline to be considered for admission in the following autumn quarter. There are no separate deadlines for applicants who wish to request assistantships since the department offers financial support to all who are admitted to the program.
Admission decisions are usually made by mid-February. Students must accept/decline offers by April 15.
