Rolling admissions: what it is and how you can benefit from it!

Posted by Kelly Norris on May 20, 2015 at 8:55 AM

Fitchburg State University accepts graduate applications on a rolling basis; meaning, as your application becomes complete, it is forwarded for a review.  The turnaround time for a decision is approximately 3 weadmissionseks from the time the application becomes complete.  The sooner your application becomes complete, the sooner you will have your decision. 

Benefits of rolling admissions:

  • Rolling admissions allows you to receive an admission decision sooner.
  • Students that submit their application early are more apt to complete their application in a timely fashion
  • You’ll have less stress as you can send in your credentials as they become available
  • You can still register and take classes while in the admissions process – up to 12 credits!

Disadvantages to delaying your application:

  • You’ll feel more pressure and stress the longer you wait to apply
  • Courses taken previously are only valid for up to 12 months prior to being admitted
  • "You may delay, but time will not." ~Benjamin Franklin

We are still accepting graduate applications for the summer, so feel free to apply now and start your admissions rolling!
