APU has a rolling admission process for graduate university admission, meaning that applications are continuously accepted and processed. It is recommended that students submit their application at least two months prior to the term they wish to attend. (This is only a recommendation; not a deadline.) This ensures the best possible service and allows appropriate time to process financial aid.

The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE), M.A.Ed., and credential program begins with entry in Summer II, Fall I, or Spring I terms. Consult the Graduate Academic Calendar to ensure timely submission of your application at least two months ahead of your preferred start term.
