General Admission Information
We begin accepting applications in mid-August/early September for the next cohort. The admission process is highly competitive and the advantage goes to applicants who start the process early and who qualify for early admission (refer to Candidate Evalution Process for information on candidate selection).
There are two levels of admission; the first is admission to the Graduate School and the second level is admission into the GATEP. Admittance to the Graduate School does not guarantee admittance to the ATEP.
