Admission Requirements

The Graduate School (GS) will consider applicants who meet the general requirements for admission. For admission to a major or certificate, applicants must meet additional admission requirements.

Meeting minimal entrance requirements does not necessarily guarantee admission. Exceptions to minimum criteria may be made at the discretion of the Admissions Committee.

Students who have not achieved the minimum GPA, grade standards, or other assessment criteria may still apply to be considered for provisional acceptance. See Admission Categories.
