Graduate Programs & Deadlines

UC Davis is now accepting applications for graduate admission
to the 2019-2020 academic year.

Applications close after 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Time) on the day of the deadline. UC Davis does not extend or waive application deadlines for any reason, including technical issues experienced by individual applicants. Not all graduate programs use all deadline categories.

Admission Deadlines

  • Applications received by the Priority Deadline will receive priority review for admission.
  • Applications received by the General Deadline will be reviewed by the graduate program but not on a priority basis.
  • Applications received by the Space Available Deadline will only be reviewed if the graduate program determines that they have additional space available after reviewing Priority and General Deadline applications.

Fellowship Deadlines

  • Prospective Student Fellowship Deadline - The deadline by which applicants must submit their graduate application (including the fellowship section) to be considered for Graduate Studies fellowships (Note: All letters of recommendation must be received no later than three business days following this deadline).
  • Continuing Student Fellowship Deadline - For current UC Davis graduate students only. Current students must submit the online fellowship application by this deadline to be considered for Graduate Studies fellowships. Note: It is strongly encouraged that all letters of recommendation be received no later than January 15, 2019. To give your recommenders as much time as possible, you can register them in the application system as soon as you start the application and can finish completing the other application sections later.
