Important Dates

OVERVIEW Applications to the IBiS program are submitted online, through The Graduate School's portal starting in the fall. 
The IBiS admissions committee begins reviewing applications from candidates in the US in December, and invites selected applicants for an admissions visit in January or February. Admissions decisions for candidates in the US are made shortly after the admissions visits. Candidates in the US who do not receive an invitation to visit, or who decline the invitation to visit, will not be offered admission. Candidates who are applying from outside of the US will have their applications reviewed by the committee in February/March. Strong candidates will be selected for phone interviews. Students who receive an offer of admission from the IBiS program must make a decision by the deadline set by the Council of Graduate Schools, April 15th. Applicants can view the admissions committee's decisions and make a decision regarding an offer of admission online.
