Application to Graduate Programs at SOCS

The School of Computer Science mostly admits new graduate students for the Fall semester (September). In exceptional situations, certain students may be admitted to the Winter semester (this requires an outstanding academic record, and the strong support of a professor in the department). Students who have completed a bachelor's degree must apply to the Masters program, even if they intend to eventually pursue a Ph.D. (see information on fast-tracking). Students who will have completed a Masters by next September and who have a strong background in computer science may apply directly to the Ph.D. program.

  • Application deadline to be considered for financial support for September is January 1st .
  • Application deadline without consideration for financial support: March 1st.
  • Application deadline for the winter semester (exceptional circumstances only): October 1st.
