Admission Requirements & Procedures for Matriculating Students

Applicants to a doctoral degree, master’s degree, certificate, or certification program are classified as matriculating students once they meet all admission criteria for the specific program and are accepted into the program.

Applicants must provide an official transcript showing receipt of a baccalaureate degree (or equivalent international degree) from an accredited college or university to document eligibility for graduate study.

Students should refer to the specific program of interest for requirements and procedures. Until all requirements for a program are met, the application will be considered incomplete, unless granted conditional admission.

A student who receives an offer of admission must acknowledge acceptance by submitting a $250 nonrefundable deposit. The deposit priority deadline is August 1 for the fall semester and January 1 for the spring semester. Payment of the deposit will begin the enrollment procedures.

Upon receipt of the registration instructional materials, students must make an appointment to meet with their academic advisor(s) or attend an admissions registration event before they can register online.
