Admissions Deadlines

Parkside operates on a rolling admission basis and, as such, we reserve the right to stop accepting applications when we believe the enrollment capacities for the campus can be satisfied by the number of students already admitted.  We encourage you to complete your application early.

Parkside anticipates closing admission for new freshmen and transfer students no later than August 15 for Fall semester and January 15 for Spring semester. All application materials (including the application, transcripts, fees, test scores, etc.) need to arrive to admissions before the end of business each of these days.
