Requirements for Admission

Applicants for admission to a graduate degree program must meet at least two minimal requirements:

  1. Possess a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university, or have evidence of equivalency if a degree was awarded at a foreign institution of higher education.
  2. Demonstrate potential for graduate work, ordinarily by having maintained a "B" average during undergraduate study and/or previous graduate study.

Additional prerequisite requirements, standards for admission, and evidence of suitability for advanced study are required by individual programs.

How to Apply

Students seeking admission should contact the Office of Admission and should carefully review the admissions requirements for their particular academic program. Full admission refers to acceptance as a matriculated graduate student. Full admission is a formal process which takes approximately two weeks from the time all necessary admission materials have been submitted. Students who do not complete the admission process cannot gain full admission status to the program.

Prospective students must submit the following to the Office of Admission:

Application Deadlines

The Office of Admissions adheres to a rolling admission policy. It is strongly recommended that all admission materials are submitted at time of application or within 30 days thereof.
