Application periods

Applications may be submitted once each semester during a designated period:

  • Fall semester: the first day of instruction through October 1 for admission to that same fall semester
  • Spring semester: the first week of instruction through March 1 for admission to that same spring semester

We do not offer rolling admission, so regardless of when the application is submitted, it won't be reviewed until after the deadline. Late applications are not accepted. If the application deadline falls on a weekend, then forms may be submitted up to 5:00 pm on the following Monday.

Completed applications should be submitted for final review to an ESS Peer Adviser. A Peer Adviser will review your application to ensure completion of the forms and give your application to the Change of College Team.  Peer Advisers are available in 230 Bechtel Engineering, Monday - Thursday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Friday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.  If a Peer Adviser is not available you can submit your completed application to the reception desk in 230 Bechtel Engineering during those same hours.  Please note the office is closed on weekends.Decisions are emailed to students during the following windows:

  • Fall applicants: November 1-30
  • Spring applicants: April 1-20
