Rotation Calendar

Visiting students must follow the Northwestern rotation calendar. Dates cannot be modified, and extensions for the application deadlines will not be granted.

Each time block will automatically close in VSAS 60 days prior to the start date. No further applications will be accepted at that time. As applications are reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis, you are encouraged to submit your completed application as early as possible.
