Admission to the IMC program occurs five times per year —in the Early Fall (August), Late Fall (October), Early Spring (January), Late Spring (March) and Summer (May).  

Upcoming Admission Term Start Dates:

  • Early Fall 2019 - August 21
  • Late Fall 2019 - October 14
  • Early Spring 2020 - January 13

The IMC program admits new students on a rolling schedule 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.


Once accepted to the program, a student may have an obstacle arise that prevents them from starting courses in their intended term. For these rare situations, students may choose to defer to a later term by completing the Deferment Form . Students who choose to defer may do so for one term from their intended start date. If a student wishes to defer their enrollment more than one term, the student must contact Enrollment Specialist at for further guidance.  

Application Submission Deadlines

Applying by the Early/Priority Admission deadline gives applicants the optimal amount of time to explore financial aid and scholarship options, complete orientation, order books and work with program advisors to plan their course of study.
