About Admission Rounds

Which round is best? That's up to you. Duke uses rounds to manage the flow of applications and to provide timely admission decisions. However, we consider every application, no matter which round it's in. So, it would be best if you chose the round with dates that fit your timeline. When making your selection, keep in mind:

  • If you are applying to other degree programs and you're concerned about responding to multiple offers, consider the date by which a reply is required
  • If you are applying to Duke MEM Online and want to include your education plans in your performance review, consider the decision notification date

Important Notes About Deadlines

  • To be considered in an application round, your application must be complete by the deadline
  • Send your scores to Duke at least one (1) month before the deadline you seek
  • Ask your recommendation providers to submit their information by the deadline
  • In some cases, Duke may postpone a decision to the next round
  • Duke can only guarantee a spot for admitted applicants until the date by which a reply is required
  • Admitted students may request to defer admission to a future term—contact Duke for more information

Advice for All Applicants

  • Think of submitting your online application as the same as sealing and mailing an envelope
  • Once you have submitted your application, none of its documents can be altered
  • Please take care to proofread carefully

Information For International Applicants

Unlike many schools, Duke does not require financial support documents as part of the application process.

Instead, students submit this information after being admitted and decide to enroll in the program, as Duke does not automatically issue I-20s to students upon admission.

Enrolling students will receive directions from Admissions after accepting Duke's offer.
