Graduate Application Materials

Submit your transcripts

Number 1


Unofficial transcripts are required for application. Official transcripts will be required upon admission. A minimum GPA of 3.0 in your last 60 credits of your undergraduate program is required for full admission.

Reference Number 2

The online application within CollegeNET will prompt you to provide names and contact information for three references who can speak to your potential success in a graduate program. Once your application is submitted, they will be prompted to complete a recommendation on your behalf both in CollegeNET and a department Qualtrics form (in lieu of a letter). A strong recommender is someone who has a graduate degree and can speak to your potential in a graduate program.

Personal essay Number 3
