CSLC welcomes applications from all qualified and interested potential students in the three Tracks.  The full application process is described in detail here.  While applicants are urged to complete this process by December 1, application materials may be accepted later (Final day to submit applications is December 17.  See below for more information).  Preliminary admission decisions are made in mid- to late January, but are often not completed until mid-February.  All admitted applicants are invited to a Visiting Day, usually held in March, when they will have the opportunity to meet faculty, current students, attend seminars, tour the campus, and visit a little of Los Angeles.  April 15 is the deadline for responding to CSLC’s offer of admission and financial support.

*** Final date to submit applications for Fall 2015 admission for the tracks in Comparative Media and Culture, Comparative Literature, French and Francophone Studies, Spanish and Latin American Studies is December 17, 8:59 pm pst.***
