All students, whether degree-seeking or not, must complete an application for graduate admission form and pay the one-time application fee. For degree-seeking students, official transcripts (signed, sealed and sent directly from higher education institutions) of all previous college and/or university work must be submitted. Depending on the program of study and the opportunity to seek financial aid, a high school transcript may also be required. Students applying for Graduate Education programs must submit a copy of their teaching certificate for most, but not all, programs. (See specific program requirements). Some degree-seeking programs require letters of recommendation, and some require test scores for admission. (See specific program requirements.) For information on testing, contact the Educational Testing Service, Box 955, Princeton, NJ 08540, or other appropriate organization. Additional admission requirements vary based upon program. Refer to specific degree--program sections for more information on the admissions criteria for each graduate program.

Students, other than international students, who are unable to complete the application process prior to the beginning of their first semester may be allowed special admission to the program pending processing of their application. This policy does not imply acceptance of the student into the degree program. Students failing to complete the application process by the beginning of the second semester after their initial application may be denied the right to register for courses.
