Earn Your Master's Degree

Requirements

While requirements vary for some programs, the following are minimum standards for all.

  • Baccalaureate Degree
    • Applicants must provide an official transcript showing that a bachelor's degree has been awarded by an accredited college or university. In cases, where a program’s accrediting body allows alternate admissions standards, exceptions may be made.
    • UofM undergraduate students applying to UofM Grad School do not need to request an official transcript. Transcripts from any other college or university attended must be requested as noted in the online application system.
    • Only transcripts received directly from an issuing institution are considered official.
  • Entrance Examinations*
    • Visit the appropriate program in the Graduate School directory for information on which tests and what scores are acceptable. Scores on MAT exams written in less than 2 month intervals are not acceptable.
    • *Some programs may waive the entrance examination requirement for applicants with exceptional credentials, extensive professional experience or a prior graduate degree from an accredited institution. These waivers are at the discretion of the academic program. Check individual program descriptions for details.
