When to Apply

Admissions Timeline: Key Dates to Remember

Wentworth practices rolling admissions, which means applications are reviewed as they are received. The application priority deadline for completed applications is December 1. After this date, some programs may be closed to further applications, so please check with the Admissions Office for space availability in the area of your interest. Decision letters are typically mailed four to six weeks after a complete application is received. These milestone dates will help you plan your application process.
