• Application Deadlines:

    Framingham State reviews applications on a rolling basis for students who wish to begin their studies in the fall (September) and spring (January) semesters. The sooner that you apply and submit all required documentation, the sooner you will get an admissions decision. The Graduate Admissions team does have preferred deadlines of July 1 (Fall) and December 1 (Spring); however, will review applications up until the week prior to classes beginning.  

    Admissions Requirements:  

    Completed online application and $50.00 non-refundable application fee
