Review the application requirements for our two graduate-level tracks within the WVU IMC program:Master of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC)
Admission to the IMC program occurs three times per year —in the Early Fall, Early Spring and Summer terms.
Upcoming WVU IMC Admission Term Start Dates:
- Early Fall 2017 - August 16
- Early Spring 2018 - January 8
The IMC program does operate on a rolling admissions basis and qualified applicants may be accepted earlier than the early/priority acceptance notification date. There may be several weeks between the day you submit your application and when you receive an admissions decision from the IMC program. All applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision whether accepted or rejected; however, the timing can vary depending on when the complete application is received. Applicants are encouraged to apply before the program’s priority/early application deadline in order to receive full consideration.
Application Submission Deadlines
Applying before the deadline gives applicants the optimal amount of time to explore and receive financial aid, order books and plan their course of study. Complete applications must be received by the following deadlines to receive full consideration for admission:
|Term||Early/Priority Admission||Applications Accepted Until|
|Early Fall (August)||May 15||August 1
|Early Spring (January)||October 1||December 1|
|Summer (May)*||April 15
Applications will be processed after the deadline until an incoming class is full. Once all available seats have been filled, qualified applicants will be deferred to the next incoming term.
If application materials are received by the corresponding application deadline, students selected for admission to the IMC program will be notified of acceptance as follows:
|Early Fall (August)||Within five (5) business days of completed application and transcript receipt.
|Early Spring (January)||Within five (5) business days of completed application and transcript receipt.|
|Summer (May)||Within five (5) business days of completed application and transcript receipt.|
