If you’re interested in Suffolk’s graduate programs, we highly encourage applying as early as possible.
By applying on or before the application deadline, you’ll get the added benefit of priority consideration for admission, financial aid, and even merit funding. We also recommend that international students submit early and well in advance of the stated application deadline.
We will continue to consider completed applications received after the priority deadline on a rolling basis for most of our graduate programs. The deadlines for the doctoral programs are hard deadlines and students completing after those deadlines will not be considered for the fall cohort. The round deadlines for Counseling, Medical Dosimetry, and Radiation Therapy are also hard deadlines and students completing their applications through the materials due dates will be considered in the next round if there is space available.
Take note of the key application dates for Suffolk graduate admissions below and be sure to apply early.
Best of luck to all our prospective graduate students.
