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 a U.S. college or university accredited by a regional accrediting association or completion of an international degree that is equivalent to a U.S. bachelor's degree from a college or university recognized and approved by the Ministry of Education or Commission responsible for higher education in the country where the degree is earned. See Required Academic Credentials from Non-U.S. Institutions. Students in their final year of undergraduate study are eligible to apply. However, final academic credentials showing conferral of the undergraduate degree must be received by the end of the first term of enrollment or no further course registration will be permitted.
- 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 summary of basic prerequisites (i.e. undergraduate degree or major required, any academic standardized test scores, prerequisite courses, work experience or other credential that might be required) can be accessed by clicking on the college where your program is housed below. If you are not sure where a program of study is housed, please explore our programs by college.
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.
