As of January 20, 2021, we are no longer taking applications for Fall 2021.
However, Hillsdale College's School of Government in Washington, DC, will accept Fall 2021 applications for their MA in Government until May 17, 2021. Please see their website for further information.
The next available entrance semester (MA program only) is Spring 2022. The deadline to apply is October 15, 2021. The priority deadline to apply for the Fall 2022 semester (MA and PhD programs) is December 15, 2021. Applications for Spring and Fall 2022 will be available online in July of 2021.
For spring semester (M.A. applicants only), the application deadline is October 15 and decisions will be sent out no later than November 15.
For the fall semester, applications submitted on or before December 15 are guaranteed full consideration and decisions will be sent out no later than February 1. Applications completed after December 15 may be considered, as circumstances warrant.
Applications will not be read by the admissions committee until all materials are received, though applicants may self-report GRE scores so that their applications can be considered unofficially. Offers of admission cannot be made until the arrival of the official score report.
Please contact us if you experience any technical difficulties that delay submitting your application.
