Special Notes: Applicants who apply for a funded assistantship position along with doctoral admission will be granted admission only if a funded position is available. Any student who would consider enrolling without assistantship funding--that is enrolling as a self-funded student--should indicate this willingness on their Assistantship application and in the Statement of Purpose. We will consider such students for funded positions first, and will extend an offer with funding if available. Only after all funded assistantship positions have been filled will we offer admission on a self-funded basis.

You need to upload your writing sample with your online application at time of submission. You cannot append the application after initial submission.
