TUJ runs on the three-semester academic calendar, and students can start from any of the three semesters during the year. In addition, TUJ's rolling-admissions procedures allow students to apply year-round. Students can apply for admission to TUJ up to three semesters in advance. Applicants typically receive an admissions decision in two weeks.
