These frequently asked questions can help you navigate the application process if you are a domestic applicant.
How do I apply for an assistantship?
The application will ask if you wish to be considered for a graduate assistantship. Graduate assistantships are awarded by the applicant’s graduate program or academic department, not by the Graduate School. For information regarding the availability of graduate assistantships, please contact the appropriate graduate program director. Also, please review the Graduate School's information on graduate assistantships.
How much will the program cost?
The cost of your degree program varies based on many factors, such as the cost per credit and how many credits are required by your program. Review the cost of with our tuition and fees page.
What is the duration of the program?
The duration of a program varies by program and its requirements. Contact the program director to determine an accurate timeline.
How long does it take to review my application?
Once we receive all transcripts and GRE/GMAT test scores (if required by program), the Graduate School will complete a credential evaluation of your education history and forward your application package to the department for review. Unofficial transcripts can be submitted for this part of the process. Depending on the number of applications received, the timeline can vary for review. We recommend that you contact the department to verify the status of your application or log into your application account to view your status.
Do I need official transcripts and test scores?
Yes, official transcripts and test scores will be needed if your application is approved by the department for acceptance. We recommend you request your official transcripts with degree confirmation as early as possible, as this can take time in some countries to obtain. Official GRE can take up to four weeks to be received at the University, depending on the time of year submitted. The sooner you request for documents, the faster we can send an official admission letter.
