Application Requirements

Admission to the master's program is determined primarily on the basis of the applicant's undergraduate grade-point average (GPA) and score attained on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Applicants for unconditional or conditional admission must meet the university requirements listed in the university catalog and one of the following requirements:

Unconditional Admission

Conditional Admission

Unclassified Admission

Applicants for degree seeking status who meet the minimum GPA requirements for conditional admission but cannot provide a satisfactory official qualifying exam score may be granted unclassified admission. Unclassified students may enroll for one semester only and for a maximum of two graduate courses. They must achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.0. Continued enrollment as a degree-seeking student after the initial semester is subject to satisfactory completion of the requirements for conditional or unconditional admission in place when the student desires to re-enroll.
