Applications are accepted and admission granted every semester. Current application deadlines are noted above. As a general rule of thumb the application deadline is set as the Friday at the end of the first full week after drop/add closes. Hard copy of the application (no faxes, email, etc) should be turned into the CJ offices -- 221 Baldwin Hall. It is not necessary to submit a transcript of DegreeWorks print-out.
