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.

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.

All students are required to complete the student health form prior to class attendance and/or entry into residence halls. Failure to comply will result in the student being placed on “health hold.” (Former students or those with name changes: please contact Health Services to update health records.) Documented proof of immunization from a physician or a copy of an official school or health department record is required as follows:

  • MMR (Measles/Mumps/Rubella): Two doses. First dose given after 1968 and on or after 12 months of age; second dose separated at least 28 days from first dose. Documentation of immunity (copy of lab report) is also acceptable.
  • Hepatitis B: All students enrolling with 12 or more credits. Three doses of vaccine, or two doses of adult vaccine in adolescents 11–15 years of age. Documentation of immunity (copy of lab report) is also acceptable.

Note: Students born before 1957 and nonmatriculating students are exempt from these immunization requirements.
