Basic Admission Requirements

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. All post-secondary transcripts from non-U.S. institutions must be submitted directly to Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE) for a Course-by-Course evaluation report. The ECE evaluation will determine U.S. equivalence for each educational credential, including degree and accreditation. 
  • Applicants whose native language is not English must demonstrate English proficiency. For more information, please review our proficiency requirements

Applicants who still need to complete their final year of study to earn their degree may apply; the degree must be completed before your first term of enrollment in our graduate program would begin. A final, official transcript and proof of degree earned would be required as a condition of admission. 

Additional 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.
