Once you’ve selected a graduate degree program, certification, or graduate-level certificate that meets your career interests and personal goals, you’re ready to begin the application process. The College of Graduate Studies considers most applications on a rolling admission basis, which enables you to apply at any time of the year (see specific program admission requirements as some exceptions do exist: Master’s Degrees, CAGS, Doctor of Education).
We encourage you to submit your application online—it’s fast, easy, and secure.
When you’ve submitted your completed application materials, the admissions review team will process your materials and notify you of the admission decision. If accepted, you will receive an applicant response form that must be returned to the College of Graduate Studies indicating your intent to enroll.
We look forward to having you become a part of our active and vibrant graduate community.
