Admissions

Deadlines

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 WVU IMC Admission Term Start Dates:

  • Early Spring 2019 - January 7
  • Late Spring 2019 - February 28 
  • Summer 2019 - May 13
  • Early Fall 2019 - TBD
  • Late Fall 2019 - TBD

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.

Deferment:

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 Emily Hayes at EmHayes@mail.wvu.edu 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.

Complete applications must be received by the following deadlines to receive full consideration for admission:

Term Early/Priority Admission Admission Deadline
Early Fall (August) May 15

Late Fall (October)  August 1

Early Spring (January)   October 1

Late Spring (Feb/March)

Applications will be processed after the Admission Deadline until an incoming class is full. Once all available seats have been filled, qualified applicants will be deferred to the next incoming term.
