Applicants should always contact the Graduate Director for their plan of study before applying to ensure that applications are still being accepted for the term in which admission is sought.
Submitting supplemental materials to the department for review
Only complete applications will be reviewed. Please check with your department regarding deadlines and required admissions test or course prerequisites. You must upload all supplemental materials to the online application. DO NOT send mail to the Graduate School or your department, as this will postpone evaluation of your application. If you are accepted and intend to matriculate into a graduate program, you will be required to provide original official transcripts before your start date. Please note that once the university receives documents they will not be returned to you. If you have questions about admission requirements, contact the Department. DO NOT submit more than one application for the same degree plan.
