Online Application

Welcome to the Duke University Graduate School electronic online application service. We are pleased that you are considering graduate study at Duke.

We offer this service to make the process of applying for admission to our graduate programs as convenient and efficient as possible. All of the forms and instructions you will need are available to you here at our website.

Please note that our Admissions FAQs page contains answers to many questions that applicants have about the online application process. You may find it useful to keep the FAQs page open on your desktop as you complete your application. (In addition to reading through our FAQs, you may also want to read the transcripts of our Application Requirements online chat sessions.)

Our online application is part of the ApplyYourself Application Network. You will be instructed to set up an account and password so that you can save and access your application at any time. The Graduate School only accepts online applications.  Please do not send paper copies of your application documents to the Graduate School unless we ask that you do so.

To get started, please follow the link below.

NOTE: A number of programs are continuing to accept Ph.D. applications after the December 8th application deadline. A list of these programs can be found here. The application deadline for master's programs is January 31st.
