Admission Procedures

For admission into a degree program, applicants should allow a reasonable amount of time for necessary documents to be processed by the appropriate degree program and Graduate Admissions (approximately three to six weeks). International applicants should allow at least four months for the application process. Applicants are urged to apply early to ensure full consideration.

All determinations concerning the classification of a student as in-state or out-of-state for fee purposes are made in the Graduate Admissions office. If, for any reason, there is a question about a state residency classification, the student is responsible for requesting a review of his/her residency status BEFORE classes begin. Complete an Application for Residency Classification and submit it to Graduate Admissions (FedEx Institute of Technology Building, Suite 201) for review.

All admission credentials become the property of the University and will not be forwarded or returned. Credentials will be maintained in active files for 12 months, after which they will be destroyed.

Steps for applying:

  • First view departmental information about admission requirements, test score requirements, application deadlines, etc. Some departments may also require a separate admissions application and may have an earlier application deadline.
  • Use our electronic admission applications to apply to Graduate School, file for readmission or to change your current degree program or student level. (Application fees for initial admission are $35 application fee for domestic students and $60 for international students).
  • All college transcripts and test score information should also be sent directly to Graduate Admissions.
  • Applicants whose highest degree is from a foreign university may be required to have their credentials evaluated by any credentialing agency listed on the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services web site (www.naces.org). Please check the website of the specific program to determine if this evaluation is required.
  • Once your application and application fee have been received, all pertinent data will be entered into a central database. At that time, Graduate Admissions will send confirmation of the receipt of your application.
  • After all pertinent admissions information (test scores and transcripts) is received by Graduate Admissions, your record will be forwarded to the respective department for evaluation.
  • Check your application status.
  • If the department decides to recommend your admission, Graduate Admissions will be notified. Subsequently, you may hear from the department regarding their recommendation of admission before you hear from Graduate Admissions regarding final admission.
  • Graduate Admissions will send official letters of admission.
  • For international applicants, the I-20 or IAP-66 needed to secure an F-1 or J-1 visa is enclosed with the official letter of admission.
