Tai Sophia Institute accepts and reviews applications on a rolling admissions basis. Applications for admission are accepted throughout the academic year. In most cases, applications are reviewed as they are received on a space available basis. However, there are priority deadlines for the master’s degree programs. We recommend that you apply six to eight months before the intended start date and that you are mindful of the priority deadlines.
For master’s degree programs, priority application deadlines are June 1 for September classes and October 1 for January classes. Graduate certificate programs do not have priority deadlines.
