Application Deadlines

There is rolling admission at Caldwell University; however we do have certain deadlines especially for international students who are also applying for F-1 non-immigrant status in order to study at Caldwell. For the spring it is recommended to be December 1st because you will need sufficient time to acquire your visa and still be able to arrive on campus by the program start date indicated on your I-20. In the fall it is recommended to be July 1st, for the same reason.
