Application Deadlines

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                   Application Deadline: July 1
Fall/September Admission for Law Students Application Deadline: June 1
Spring/January Admission Application Deadline: November 15
Later admission deadlines MIGHT be possible for students who are already in the US and have valid F-1 student status.

* Graduate students should check specific deadlines for majors. Some majors only accept students once a year and deadlines vary.
