What are the upcoming intakes in USA?
Know about the deadlines & intakes available in the USA
Unlike a single intake in Bangladeshi universities, American colleges and universities offer three intakes. In some universities, intakes may also be referred to as a semester. The three intakes available in the US are:
- Fall: The Fall Intake in the USA starts in the month of September
- Spring: The Spring Intake in the USA Starts in the January; it’s best if you miss the September intake
- Summer: Available for limited programs and colleges, the Summer intake usually starts around May
Which intake to opt for?
It can get a bit confusing to choose the intake that’s best for you. Consider factors like the availability of your preferred program, your academic records, entrance test scores, acceptance rates, job opportunities and your readiness to join the program whilst making a decision.
Here’s an overview of the intakes and their duration in American universities and colleges:
From August to December
From January to April
From May to August
*Intakes vary basis institution and your program. Please speak with your IDP counsellor for more information.
While most Bangladeshi students prefer the Fall intake, Spring and Summer intakes are equally good for certain programs. We suggest, if you do not have your score cards ready, it’s better to skip the haste and apply for the next intake.
Opportunities in terms of scholarships
As the academic year starts during this time, so you can get more opportunities in terms of scholarships and better networking options with other students
Lesser opportunities as most of the scholarships and funding are availed during the start of the academic year

A comparatively limited number of courses are offered by universities in spring intake
Part-time work opportunities

As you may start in mid of the year , the opportunities to work on campus and an as a researcher are slightly lesser
Leadership position in social groups
As all the social group are made since the starting of the year so it's easier for a fall student to lead that particular group
In the spring semester, it would be difficult to show your real potential as a leader as a social group are already made
Fall students can easily apply for internship opportunities as they easily meet the 9 months criteria before applying
Spring students face the eligibility problem of 9 months enrollment condition to intern with any company as an intern
