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 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)
|Summer (May)||March 1||May 1|
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.
If application materials are received by the corresponding application deadline, students selected for admission to the IMC program will be notified of acceptance within five (5) business days of completed application and transcript receipt.
