Graduate Programs


Starting Fall 2017 semester, Oakland University is introducing new graduate application deadlines. Applicants submitting an application by the early deadline will receive first consideration for a graduate student assistantship (GA). Submitting a completed application by the early and regular deadline qualifies applicants for the new Graduate Study Scholarship for new graduate students. OU's graduate admission process is selective and the process is competitive. We encourage you to submit and complete your application as early as possible. 

Some programs have earlier application deadlines and may not admit for all semesters. You should check the admission terms, application deadlines, and application requirements for your specific program.

Fall 2015 - Summer 2017

  • July 15 for fall semester
  • November 15 for winter semester 
    • Due to the high application demand, the general deadline for the Winter 2017 semester is extended to Monday, December 5, 2016. Applications and all required documents must be submitted by the new deadline date. The new deadline does not supersede program specific deadlines. Applications submitted after December 5, will be updated to a future semester.   
  • March 15 for summer semester

Starting with Fall 2017 

  • February 15 (early), April 15 (regular) and July 15 (late) for fall semester
  • October 1 (early) and November 15 (regular) for winter semester
