Since preparations for entering a college in the United States are complex, international students should begin their application process one year before intended enrollment.
The University of Southern Maine does have application deadlines for international applicants in order to allow sufficient time for processing the necessary immigration documents and to allow the student time to obtain a student visa.
Fall/September Admission: The application deadline is May 1st. *
Spring/January Admission: The application deadline is October 1st *
* Students who wish to be considered for graduate assistantships and/or scholarships should submit their fall applications by February 1st at the latest.
Later admission deadlines might be possible for students who are already in the US and who already have an F-1 student visa.
