Application Information

Application

Spring Semester - Application Deadline

Application Deadline: December 1st

Fall Semester - Application Deadline

Application Deadline: July 1st

NOTE: Currently the following States do not have Federally required agreements with the University of Nevada, Reno, allowing their residents to participate in distance education online programs at UNR, and therefore we cannot accept applications from residents of: Alabama, Arkansas, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey and the District of Columbia.

Application for Admission

Application for admission to the Justice Management Program includes application to the University of Nevada, Reno Graduate School and therefore involves a two-step process as detailed below.

Admission to the UNR Graduate School requires an undergraduate grade-point average of at least 2.75 on a scale of 4.0, or an average of at least 3.0 for courses taken during the last half of the undergraduate program, and a completed baccalaureate degree from an appropriately accredited institution.

If your GPA does not meet this criteria, admission to graduate standing on a prescribed program may be considered. Alternatively, an applicant may take a limited number of courses - with permission from the Justice Management program - as a Graduate Special. This status does not guarantee admission to the program, but allows a student to demonstrate that he or she can satisfactorily perform graduate level work.

Scores of standardized tests such as the GRE are not required for application to the Master of Justice Management program.

Application as a Regular Graduate Student

ONLY as a regular graduate student, full graduate standing - if applying as a graduate special student see below.

STEP ONE: Apply to the Graduate School

Apply to the Graduate School - you will need to “Create a CollegeNET account” and establish a password. You can work on your application, save it, make revisions later if you wish, and then submit it electronically. You must submit that application and payment of application fees ($60 for new students, $40 for UNR alumni) electronically.

After you have created an account, complete the “Graduate Students" application at:http://www.unr.edu/admissions/how-to-apply/apply-now

After your application is complete, request ONE official transcript from the Registrar’s Office at EVERY post-secondary school you’ve attended (community college, university, etc.). Official transcripts are those sent directly from the institution attended: personal copies or “issued to student” are not acceptable even if they are in sealed envelopes.

Request transcripts to be sent to:

University of Nevada, Reno
Graduate School
Mail Stop 326
Reno, NV
89557-0326
Attn: Lisa Oliveto

Note: All students must comply with UNR's immunization requirements prior to registering for courses.

STEP TWO: Application to the Justice Management Masters Program

Access the “Application for Admission to the Justice Management Program” form at:http://www.unr.edu/justicemanagement/documents/JMP.Application.Form.May06.pdf Enter the information requested, print the completed form, date and sign the form, and submit it (together with your personal statement; see item number 12 on the application form for details) to the address below.

Two letters of recommendation (see item number 13 on the application form for details) should be sent directly from the persons writing the letters to the address below. However, if your recommenders submit online recommendations via the graduate school's website, that will satisfy this requirement. (You may be required to list 3 recommenders on the Graduate School application, however, the JM program only requires 2 of the recommenders to submit letters.)

Mail, fax, or email the application to:

Jane L. Robinson, J.D., MBA
Assistant Program Director
Justice Management Program /311
University of Nevada, Reno
Reno, NV 89557
