Religious Studies PhD Applications in the Spring?


Recommended Posts

I am completing my MA in religious studies (Islamic studies) this December and have nearly everything ready in regards to applying to PhD programs (religion, middle eastern, near eastern), however I have had some health related setbacks and was unable to take the GRE in time for applications this cycle, I was wondering do any schools have application cycles in the Spring? I would prefer not to wait an entire year to apply in December 2017...

Please let me know

There may be some schools that would admit you in the late spring but it would be very difficult to get funding at that point. Is there any way you could use the GRE scores you used when you applied to your MA program? Alternately, have you checked to see when the next available date for the GRE is? It's possible that you could take it in time that you could apply to programs with deadlines of January 15...

P.S. You may find the advice on this similar recent thread helpful:
