Prospective Students

Application Dates

Applications for all School of Information programs are accepted throughout the year. Applicants can apply for admission in the fall or spring semesters, although most students choose to begin in the fall.  

Application deadlines for priority admission, which includes priority consideration for scholarships, can be found on the Graduate General Admissions Requirements page.

Cost of Attendance

For up-to-date information regarding the School’s Tuition and Fees, please visit the Graduate Cost of Attendance page.


All applicants are considered for merit scholarships; a separate scholarship application is not required. Merit scholarships are awarded based on the evaluation of application materials including GPA, essay, and letters of recommendation. For students in good academic standing (i.e., if the student maintains a minimum 3.0 GPA), merit scholarships are automatically renewed for the second year of study. Merit scholarships are awarded to full-time students, but part-time students with a 3.5 GPA can petition for part-time study with scholarship

Current students can apply for one of many fellowship opportunities.
