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). The School offers Masters and Ph.D. programs. To decide which program is appropriate for you, please see this information on graduate programs . Note that if you have not already completed a Masters program, you must apply to the Masters program, although you will be considered for direct admission to the Ph.D. program if you request so (see )
