Application Deadlines

SPRING 2014

Sacramento State operates under a completion deadline process. Your application must be filed and all transcripts, test scores, and documents must be received by the Office of Graduate Studies by the close of business on the final application filing deadline for your department. University applications are term specific, which means that Sacramento State will not defer or roll forward your application or admission from term to term. If you do not attend Sacramento State in the term designated on your application, then you must reapply and submit a new application and fee for the subsequent term you wish to start attending Sacramento State.

*** If you have not done so, please visit our Graduate Admissions section, which provides detailed information on how to apply to California State University, Sacramento. ***

IMPORTANT!!: Students with International documents must submit transcripts/mark sheets at least one month prior to program deadline. Students with F or J visas must apply through International Admissions. Please contact the department for supplemental deadlines and applications.

**All dates and programs are subject to change without notice** If your program is not listed here, please check with your department for the deadline.
