Eligibility to apply to the MPA requires a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university (see the Graduate Admissions section in this catalog for further details) and evidence of potential to succeed at graduate study. No more than twelve graduate credits earned in non-degree status at The College at Brockport prior to a graduate student’s official matriculation date may be applied toward the degree program. Therefore, individuals are encouraged to apply for admission to the MPA program as soon as possible.
To apply for admission to the MPA, an applicant must submit the following as part of the self-managed application:
Note: If the applicant already possesses a master’s degree from an accredited institution, or has completed 30 credits or more of course work at the master’s level from an accredited institution with a graduate cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 for those graduate courses taken, the applicant does not have to take the GRE.
The faculty reserve the right to deny admission even when minimum requirements are met.
