strtotime() will convert any date to a unix timestamp.  The function documentation can be found at

Please, please, please read this article (I'm sure we have talked about this before).  It will answer almost all of your questions about handling dates and times in PHP.

One of the things you want to be careful about... Dates written with dashes separating the month, day and year may be interpreted differently from dates written with slashes.  You might want to set up some test cases so you can see the difference.
