SUMMER I and II DEGREE-seeking APPLICATION DEADLINE
There is currently one degree-seeking program accepting applications for summer which is Product Management, a certificate-level program.
The deadline for domestic on-campus and online is June 1st. The deadline for International is April 4th*.
Please Note: If you wish to begin any program other than Product Management in the summer, you may apply in the fall for that term year and communicate with the Department of Application that you would like to begin in the summer. If they have the ability for a summer start and you are admitted, they will change your application to summer during the admissions process.
Non-Degree applications are accepted up until one week before Census Day for each entry term. Census Day is the deadline to add or drop full-term (16-week) courses and the first 6-week session. Please review the academic calendar for Census Day and other information.
There is no application fee for the non-degree application.
Some Important information to note
International Student Deadlines
International students who have already obtained a visa and who are currently located within U.S. borders may apply using their program of interest’s domestic application deadline. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you are in this situation and we will update your application accordingly.
*International Student Eligibility
F-1 and J-1 cannot be issued for residential graduate certificate programs. If you are on a current F-1 or J-1 visa at Mines and enrolled in another graduate program or a different visa type (such as H1B) and are interested in one of these programs, please contact ISSS to confirm your enrollment eligibility. International students are welcome to enroll in our online graduate certificates.
Applicants requesting financial support are strongly encouraged to submit applications by this date. Applications will be considered for financial support for as long as support is available. Applications submitted after the priority deadline will be processed only after we have completed the processing of applications submitted by the priority deadline.
All required application file materials, including the letters of recommendation (if required), must be submitted on or before your program of interest’s application deadline.
Please contact your program/department(s) of interest to inquire about submitting an application after the stated deadlines have passed. Please contact the Graduate Admissions Office if you have questions about the application process.
