Department of History

Admission & Financial Aid


The department only accepts fall admissions. The application deadline for admission in the fall semester is January 15th.

To apply, prospective students must submit an electronic application. For details, please see the application instructions. About one week after the submission of the application, you can begin checking the status of your application via the apply yourself application system. Due to the high volume of applications, please refrain from calling or emailing regarding the status of your application. Admissions statistics are available.

Financial Aid

All students (whether or not they are US Citizens) who are admitted to our program receive a multi-year financial package in the form of teaching assistantships and non-teaching fellowships.  In addition, history students are eligible for fellowships offered through the various regional centers of University Center for International Studies (UCIS).  Learn more about tuition and fees.
