The UW COJO Graduate Program begins its review of applications on March 1 each year for the following fall semester. However, students are encouraged to submit materials as soon as possible to ensure a complete application file.
If you want to be considered for the graduate teaching assistantship, then you must have your application completed by March 1. If you do not wish to be considered for the graduate teaching assistantships, then applications may be submitted after March 1.
