​Deadlines

Getting ready to apply? Here's when to do it.

Thanks for your interest in joining our SOLES community—we're looking forward to reviewing your application. Because we receive a high volume of applications, it's very important that we process them in an organized and fair way, which translates to our having firm deadlines. We take our job very seriously when we review applications, and we need applicants to take theirs just as seriously when it comes to timeliness.

As a prospective student, please know that it's your responsibility (and a critical part of the application process) to make sure all official documents are received before the deadline. You'll see two types of deadlines below—a final deadline* means that's the last day an application can be received and be considered. The early deadlines listed offer a great way to play it safe and submit your application in time for a priority review and an early decision.

*Please note that the online application closes at 9pm PT/12am ET on the dates listed below. We strongly recommend submitting your online application in advance to avoid missing the deadline in your specific time zone.
