Graduate Student Requirements for Admission
You must meet the Graduate School standards and your program-specific requirements to be admitted.
Admission decisions are based on the entire application package—for example, strong letters of recommendation may compensate for low test scores.
Graduate School Requirements
Find your program specific requirements through the department/program website or the degree listing pages.
Application deadlines are set by the program or department and are listed in our Programs at a Glance table.
- $60 for all domestic/resident alien applicants
- $95 for all international students
All fees are non-refundable and non-transferrable.
What’s Next in the Admissions Process?
Application packages from eligible students will be sent electronically to the program or department once all materials have arrived. Supplemental materials may be sent to the Graduate School office to be scanned into the student application file.
The program or department reviews students’ applications and makes their recommendations to the Graduate School. The Graduate School processes applications by the degree program’s deadline. Official communication to admit or deny an applicant will come from the Graduate School.
If you are an international student but you do not meet the English language requirement you may be eligible for conditional admission through the Intensive English Language Center (IELC).
