The Graduate Studies Committee reviews applications for admission year-round, but we can only offer Graduate Teaching Assistantships beginning in Fall Semester. Thus, in order to receive full consideration for financial support, your application must be received by January 15 for the following Fall.
There is no separate form to apply for Graduate Teaching Assistantships; the committee considers offers of admission and financial support at the same time.
The Graduate Studies Committee takes care to look at your whole application, basing its decisions on several kinds of information: grades, letters of recommendation, GRE scores, a statement of purpose or professional goals, and a writing sample. A bulleted checklist follows. Some of these materials should be sent to the Graduate School, some directly to the Department of English. Each program, of course, has its own admissions goals and emphases, and these are specified in the program descriptions for the MA, the MTPC, and the PhD.
