Graduate School Application Fees and Deadlines
We appreciate your interest in our graduate programs at Colorado School of Mines. As you work to meet the following deadlines remember:
A completed application packet is different from a submitted application. You can submit your online application without all of the credentials (letters of recommendation, transcripts, test scores, etc.). The Graduate Office will hold your application until we receive all of your credentials. When all credentials have been received your application packet is considered complete and will be forwarded to the department for review. You will receive an email message notifying you that your application is in review.
Applications that do not meet the deadlines below will not be processed by the Graduate Office.
Please view the Colorado School of Mines academic calendar for relevant dates.
