Are application deadlines university-wide?

  1. Sep 12, 2013 #1
    Simple question, are applications deadlines usually university-wide or does it vary from department to department (or college to college)? Or does the system depend on the whole university you're looking at?

    Thanks in advance.

    Normally it's university wide for undergraduate level, but you should check your desired university website for they will almost always have this essential information.

    It usually always is university wide.

    What's even weirder is that even some acceptance/decline letters are all distributed at once; for example, you wouldn't know if you've gotten into Purdue University until December 1 or not. I'm not sure why universities do this, but it can be extremely agitating to the students waiting go an acceptance letter.
