Application Deadlines

The preferred deadline for MCJ and MPA students is in place for scholarship and funding opportunities. Getting your materials in before or after the preferred deadline has no bearing on likelihood of admittance. If you miss the preferred/priority deadline, you may not be able to apply for scholarships. However, you are still eligible to apply for admission before the final deadline passes.
