Eligibility for Admission Consideration

To be eligible for admission consideration, applicants must meet the Graduate School's minimum requirements.

Bachelor's Degree

The Graduate School requires applicants to have earned a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution in the United States or a comparable degree from a foreign academic institution.

3.0 GPA

A grade-point average (GPA) of at least 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or a comparable GPA in upper-division work—junior- and senior-level courses—and in any graduate work already completed is also required. If your GPA does not meet the minimum requirement—or if you feel that your GPA is not a valid indicator of your ability—you may submit an application, then use the Document Upload System to add a letter explaining your concerns.

Official Test Scores (GRE, GMAT, TOEFL, IELTS)

Check with the program to which you are applying to see which test you should take. International applicants must take either the TOEFL or the Academic Examination of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

Adequate Preparation

Your records must reflect adequate subject preparation for your proposed graduate major.

Additional Program Requirements

Individual graduate programs may have more rigorous requirements and may require additional materials. Check with the program to ensure you’re able to meet its requirements and deadlines.
