Graduate education is both exciting and challenging. Academic expectations are higher than at the undergraduate level, but the career rewards in terms of both financial gain and self-esteem are also higher. At the graduate level, students begin to focus explicitly on a single discipline or professional program.
Applicants for admission to graduate studies must have completed a baccalaureate degree at an accredited institution. To be considered for admission, the applicant must complete a graduate admission form and send an application fee, submit an official transcript from the institution awarding the baccalaureate degree and all other undergraduate institutions, send two letters of recommendation, and have the results of the Graduate Record Exam or the Miller Analogies Test sent to the Office of Graduate and Continuing Education. Those who hold advanced degrees should submit transcripts from the granting institutions. All materials for application must be received by February 1 for the September admission date.
