Information for applicants

Thank you for your interest in graduate study in Linguistics at the University of Maryland.

Please use the menu below to get more information about the department, the program, the area, and the application process. More general information about the process is available from the Graduate School. If after reading these pages, you have questions about applying for graduate study at Maryland, please email Dr. Bill Idsardi.


We strongly encourage applicants to submit all hard copy materials that must be sent to the Graduate School (e.g., transcripts) by mid-December, so that they will be processed in time for the early January due date. Note that it is no longer necessary to submit the initial on-line application form a few weeks early, but it is still strongly recommended to submit this initial form at least a week before the due date.
