Admission Policies

Each applicant must hold a baccalaureate degree or graduate degree from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university, or its equivalent from a recognized non-U.S. institution of higher learning to apply to Graduate School. The Office of Graduate Studies is responsible for accepting application materials for admission. Completed application packs will be forwarded to the appropriate graduate academic unit admissions committee for review to consider for admission. Incomplete applications will be held in the Graduate Studies Office until they are complete and ready for review by the appropriate admission committee. Incomplete admission credentials (application and letters of recommendations) are kept on file for one year and once this deadline expires, the prospective student will have to resubmit these documents to update his/her credential file.

Official admission notifications of acceptance or rejection are emailed to the applicant. Students whose academic credentials do not meet the minimum requirements will be denied admission. Admitted applicants who do not enroll for the intended semester they have applied will be classified as inactive. This means the student will need to contact the Office of Graduate Studie to update his/her status for the expected term of enrollment. Students with a break in enrollment for one or more semesters will have to reapply for admission.
