PhD Kinesiology - Deadlines
Admission into the graduate program is determined by a Departmental committee that takes into account all components of the application to arrive at a decision. As there are more applicants than available seats in the PhD program, the application process is competitive. Applications can be submitted for consideration for both Fall and Spring start dates and will be reviewed on a continual basis.
The PhD Kinesiology Program observes two application deadlines:
Early Deadline for Graduate Assistantships: January 1st
PhD applicants who are also interested in one of the Department's limited number of Graduate Assistantships are strongly encouraged to apply by the Early Deadline. Complete applications received on or before the Early Deadline will be given first consideration for available Graduate Assistantships.
General Deadline for PhD Kinesiology Applicants: May 1st
All PhD Kinesiology applications must be submitted on or before May 1st. If Graduate Assistantships are still available after all Early Deadline applicants have been considered, then General Deadline applicants are eligible to be considered for any remaining Graduate Assistantships.
