Are You Qualified to Apply?
All graduate applicants are required to meet the following minimum requirements for admission:
- Completion of a bachelor’s degree from an approved institution. Criteria vary based on whether you earned your bachelor’s degree from a US institution or an institution outside of the United States.
- Applicants whose native language is not English must demonstrate English proficiency. Proficiency tests that are accepted are the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), the Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB) and the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Our TOEFL institution code is 1861. For more information, please review our proficiency requirements.
Additional requirements vary by program.

A holistic review of each applicant is conducted. Admission is granted to applicants who have been recommended for admission by the program to which they have applied. Preference is generally given to students who have at least a B average (3.0 in a 4.0 grading system) in relevant undergraduate coursework or otherwise provide evidence of promise that is satisfactory to the admitting program.
