Admission to any graduate program may seem daunting, but here you’re not alone. Our path offers a personal guide with a committed graduate admissions director who will walk you through the process step by step.

Admission requirements vary depending on the program but typically include:

  • Official transcripts from an accredited academic institution indicating an earned baccalaureate degree and transcripts from all institutions where you’ve earned undergraduate or graduate college credit.
  • Letters of recommendation
  • A current resume
  • For some programs, a GMAT or GRE score

For programs with rolling admission: Completed application files must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the start of the semester in which you’re applying. Though our Summer Semester is broken into three sessions, anyone applying for the summer should have a completed packet accepted into a program prior to the first day of the Summer Semester.
