Application Checklist

You must submit all application materials to the Graduate School at least one week before the term in which you plan to begin graduate study. Be aware that some departments may have earlier deadlines and may require additional supporting credentials for admission.

1. Contact the department of the graduate program you’re interested in to find out the department's admission requirements. Inquire about graduate assistantships, application deadlines, and any requirements for supporting credentials.

2. Complete and submit the required material to the department of the program you want to study.

3. Complete and submit the Graduate School application along with the $60 nonrefundable application fee, and your transcripts to the Graduate School.

  • Applications must be completed online. You'll need a Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover credit card to pay the fee or you can pay online with Electronic Check (U.S. banks only).

Note: We will not take any action toward your admission until we’ve received your official transcripts, application fee, and completed Graduate School application.
