Graduate Application Deadlines

All information used to make an admission decision must be received by the published deadlines. If a University deadline falls on a weekend, applicants have until the following Monday to submit their application fees and all supporting documents. In addition, the University reserves the right to close any level of admission earlier if warranted by enrollment limitations and the number and quality of applications. It is recommended that students apply as early as one year prior to the term they wish to begin (unless otherwise indicated).

Please note: Some application deadlines for the Panama City campus may differ from the deadlines established for the Tallahassee campus. Students who miss Tallahassee deadlines cannot apply to the Panama City campus and then request to have their application transferred to the Tallahassee campus.


University graduate admission deadlines for the Panama City campus are the same as the Tallahassee campus. Most academic programs have earlier deadlines than those established by the University, or may admit only for a specific term. Prospective applicants must contact the academic program for program application deadlines.

Graduate applications and all supporting documents should be submitted well in advance of the program deadline, especially for those applicants who are interested in being considered for University fellowships, assistantships, tuition waivers, or other special funding.
