Application Deadlines

Oakland University is introducing new graduate application deadlines. Applicants submitting an application by the early deadline will receive first consideration for a graduate student assistantship (GA). Submitting a completed application by the early and regular deadline qualifies applicants for the new Graduate Study Scholarship for graduate students. OU's graduate admission process is selective and the process is competitive. We encourage you to submit and complete your application as early as possible. 

Some programs have earlier application deadlines and may not admit for all semesters. You should check the admission terms, application deadlines, and application requirements for your specific program.

Application deadlines 

  • February 15 (early), April 15 (regular) and July 15 (late) for fall semester
  • October 1 (early) and November 15 (regular) for winter semester
  • March 1 (regular) for summer semester

Deadlines for international applicants will not be effected and can be found on the international admission webpage.
