Summer Term 2024, Fall Term 2024, and Spring Term 2025 applications are open.

Admissions Criteria

Each Advanced Academic Program has a baseline set of criteria necessary before your application can be considered, such as a bachelor’s degree and a minimum GPA. Additionally, some master’s degree programs have identified program-specific prerequisite courses which cover critical knowledge you will need to be successful in the program. Please review your program’s Admissions Criteria before you begin your application.

Application Overview

You will apply to your master’s degree program via an online application. Your application will require certain supporting materials to be submitted, such as a résumé, a statement of purpose, and your official transcripts. Often times recommendations and other supporting materials, such as a writing sample, may be required. You may directly access your program’s specific list of Required Supporting Materials below. Please submit all application materials, and the $75 application fee, either via the online application form or directly to our office.

Once your application and all materials are received, please allow two weeks for processing. An incomplete application (including the application fee) is valid for one year from the date the application was initiated.

Application Timeframes

Upcoming Terms Summer 2024 Fall 2024 Spring 2025
Application Status Open Open Open
  • You are strongly encouraged to apply and complete the application process at least four-to-six weeks before the start of your desired semester.
  • International applicants seeking a visa to begin studying on campus should submit all application materials at least three months prior to the start of either their first Fall or Spring semester of study.

Program Modality

Within the Fall and Spring term applications, you will be asked to indicate whether you intend to study “Online” or “On Campus”. International students are encouraged to double-check that their preferred “On Campus” program supports a visa.

Selecting your modality provides a clear path forward regarding questions of application decision timeframes, initial tuition deposits, and visa sponsorship opportunities. Please note, some master’s degree programs do not offer both modalities.

Sending Your Official Transcripts

We prefer to accept electronic transcripts emailed directly to [email protected] from the granting institution. If your institution doesn’t provide electronic transcripts, you can request your official transcripts to be mailed directly to our Transcript Processing Center.
