All applications and supplemental materials for any Biden School doctoral program must be submitted through the University of Delaware's online graduate application.

The Joseph R. Biden, Jr. School of Public Policy and Administration has a long and proud tradition of caring deeply about the individual success of all included in the Biden School community—especially our students!
Here are some important dates to keep in mind as you explore our graduate programs and work on your application:
PhD applications are only accepted for Fall terms.
Fall Semester Admission
The priority deadline for full-time fall semester admission to all Biden School doctoral programs is December 15.
The majority of the available research and financial assistantships are awarded for the fall semester to those applicants who meet the priority deadline. Applications are accepted after the mid-January deadline and will be considered on a rolling basis until the final deadline of May 1, or until cohorts are full.
Applications must be complete to receive full consideration and review by the admissions committee. Please plan accordingly when seeking references, and scheduling English Proficiency tests (if necessary).
When applying to a Biden School doctoral program, the following documents must be submitted online through the graduate application system. Please do not attempt to mail any printed copies of materials, as this may cause delays and errors in the processing of your application.
Please note that admissions criteria for the education and social policy and the engineering and public policy programs may differ. Please refer to the website pages for these programs for more information.
We periodically host virtual visits for prospective students to meet the faculty and learn more about graduate study in the Biden School. If there are no virtual visits scheduled, or you would like to set up a one-on-one Zoom meeting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
