Application Deadlines

CEE only accepts online applications. CEE does not accept applications for the spring semester.

  • The deadline for applications for Fall 2017 has passed.
  • For Fall 2018, the application will open in mid-September and the deadline will be in mid-December 2017. The exact date is TBA.

Transcripts and letters of recommendation will be accepted for the MS and PhD programs, for 2 weeks after the application deadline; however, we cannot promise that late documents will be included in the review of the application.​​

Update: Starting with the 2017-18 academic year, the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department is instituting Professional Degree Supplemental Tuition as part of the MS degree. On a per semester basis, this will add $3,000 for California residents and $4,500 for non-residents to the cost of attending. The revenues from this program will be used for targeted financial aid, to expand our MS curricular offerings, to increase the level of instructional service in MS courses through investment in teaching assistants (Graduate Student Instructors, or GSIs), to provide career planning, networking and other professional services, and to invest in space and facilities improvements.
