Upcoming Intakes in USA

US universities are currently accepting international students’ applications for Summer and Fall intake.


Summer Intake in USA

The Summer intake in US starts in the month of May. Since the number of seats and courses available in this intake is less as compared to the other two intakes, it is an unpopular intake among international students. However, it is a great opportunity for students to secure admission during this intake as fewer applications during this intake increase the chances of getting an offer letter from the university. The applications for this intake are about to close.

NOTE: If you are planning to apply for the May intake, check out the complete details of the upcoming summer 2023 intake in US.


Fall Intake in USA

It is considered the biggest and most popular intake among overseas students. The fall intake in US starts in the month of August. Almost all universities accept applications for all their courses during this intake. Moreover, one of the greatest advantages of applying during this intake is that students get more opportunities for on-campus as well as off-campus part-time jobs.

Q: How many intakes are there in USA?

A: Generally, US universities offer two major intakes to international students, i.e., Spring (January) and Fall (August). However, few universities offer Summer (May) intake as well.


Q: Which intake to opt for?

A: Making the optimal intake decision can be a little tricky. When making a decision, students must consider certain factors such as the availability of their desired programme, their academic history, results of their previous qualification, a test score of their standardised admission test and English proficiency test, acceptance rates, employment opportunities, and their readiness to begin the programme. However, we suggest that if the students do not have complete documents, they must apply for the fall instead of summer intake.

A: For the Summer 2023 intake, students must make their application as soon as possible since the deadline is very close. Moreover, students planning to study in the Fall intake must also start shortlisting universities according to their profile for a timely application and smooth process.
