For Fall semester admissions, the offers of financial aid are made throughout April and sometimes into May. If you do not hear from us that probably means that we are not prepared to offer you financial aid at this time. However, we keep your application on file just in case an opening develops or we receive funds to hire additional graduate students. In that case, we will contact you for your availability. This can happen at any time during the year including the possibility of starting in the Spring semester.
