Prospective students who wish to pursue a master's degree, post-master's certificate of advanced study, or advanced graduate certificate should apply as a matriculated student. Students applying for entry into our programs must have earned a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university prior to beginning graduate study.
- Must complete and submit an online degree application with a non-refundable application fee (MasterCard, Visa, Discover are accepted), as well as any required Part II application materials. Applications are processed by The Graduate School on a continuing basis and are reviewed electronically by a departmental graduate admission committee. Although each program has a specific application deadline, late applications are welcomed and will be considered on a space-available basis. Applicants may be offered one of two types of admission:
Regular Admission: Matriculation into a degree program without reservation.
Conditional Admission: Matriculation into a degree program on a conditional basis. Conditionally admitted applicants will be apprised in writing of the specific courses (up to 12 credits) they need to take and the minimum grade they need to earn in order to achieve regular admission status.
Applicants will receive an official letter of admission from The Graduate School. Any other correspondence regarding admission from an academic department is not considered official.
