Application Timeline


Applications are accepted beginning early September. Be sure that the e-mail address indicated on your application is accurate. We are unable to confirm applications received without a valid e-mail address. Please ensure that all required materials are submitted prior to the application deadline of December 1 (11:59 pm EST).

Find the PIBS team on the road and ask us about the program, applying and succeeding in graduate school.


The PIBS Admissions Committee will begin reviewing completed applications after the December 1 deadline. After the Committee review, all applicants will either be invited to interview or be sent a notification of declined admission. All interview activities for the 2022 admission cycle will be conducted virtually in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Although we will not be hosting on-campus interviews this year, we fully intend to deliver a high-quality interview and virtual visit to our invited interviewees. More details to be announced later in the year.


Applicants who are invited to interview can choose one of two virtual interview weekends. Scheduling and additional information for these weekends is provided at the time of invitation. Decisions on offers of admission will be made after interviews. Applicants will be contacted as soon as possible to inform them of their status.
