When to Apply to GUCL

You Choose When You're Ready to Begin

Applications for Admission are accepted on a rolling basis. We recommend applying at least three months in advance of the enrollment opportunity you are interested in.

There is an applicant file completion deadline for each enrollment period. That means your application, fee and all necessary transcripts, recommendations, essays, etc. must be submitted no later than the deadline. Contact the Office of Admissions regarding applicant file completion deadlines. Click here to review a checklist of required documents.
