Now Accepting Fall 2024 Applications for the M.S. IMC Military Public Affairs (DINFOS) Cohort

Our Military Public Affairs (DINFOS) M.S. IMC Cohort is highly competitive with limited seats available per entry term. Due to increasing demand, we're no longer admitting students on a rolling basis or able to defer students to future entry terms once admitted and assigned a seat in an introductory course (rare exceptions apply for military orders and medical emergencies). Military Public Affairs IMC cohort applicants need to submit their application by the deadlines below for their preferred entry term and be prepared to start if accepted. We'll review all applications after the deadline, admit qualified applicants and implement a waitlist as needed. Admission decisions for this special cohort are based on qualifications and capacity.

Within weeks of your admission, you'll meet with our advisor to discuss your course schedule and individual options. We recommend you submit your Federal Tuition Assistance as soon as you are notified of admission. Make sure you review the Federal Tuition Assistance information and plan accordingly. If an admitted student is unable to start courses for reasons other than military orders or medical emergency, they must reapply and recompete for a seat in a future entry term.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You must indicate qualification for the Military Public Affairs (DINFOS) cohort in your application to be considered and receive the partnership rate. You can also waive the application fee by confirming your military service.
