Projected Application Dates
Starting in Fall 2019, the CLS Program is moving to a more predictable application cycle, with the application opening the Thursday of the week following Labor Day, and closing Tuesday the week before Thanksgiving. Although these dates may change based on unpredictable circumstances in the future, we hope that this helps prospective applicants and advisors in planning for the CLS Program application each fall.
