Deadlines for Graduate Admissions

St. John Fisher College's graduate programs operate on a rolling admissions basis unless otherwise noted.

Applications are reviewed as they are received and admissions decisions are made within four weeks of receipt of a completed application. Space constrained programs will review applications until they reach enrollment capacity.

Contact the Office of Graduate Admissions if you have questions about the application process for your program of interest.
