Admission Deadlines

Priority Deadline

Undergraduate and graduate students are strongly encouraged to apply to UDC by the priority application deadline. Students who apply by the priority deadline receive the following benefits:

  • Guaranteed seat if admitted
  • Guaranteed admissions response within an expedited timeframe
  • Eligible for full institutional scholarship consideration (separate application not required except as noted on scholarship website)
  • Advantage in securing low-cost housing on UDC’s campus as applications for UDC housing are processed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Applications submitted after the priority deadline are considered on a space available basis only.

Your Application is incomplete until  ALL REQUIRED DOCUMENTS are received by Admissions.

Students who do not submit a complete application before the beginning of the term for which they are applying are not guaranteed admission for the current term, and may be admitted for the subsequent term instead.
