Entrance Requirements

Completed Bachelor’s Degree

Admission to Graduate Study requires a completed bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university. The degree must contain a minimum of 42 advanced semester hours (courses designed for juniors and seniors). Hours given for life experience may not be counted toward the 42 hour requirement. Students presenting degrees with less than 42 advanced hours must satisfy all other entrance requirements and complete sufficient undergraduate upper level hours before they may be admitted.

Test Scores

Official test scores, if required, must be transmitted to the Office of Graduate Studies directly from the testing service. Some programs do not require the GRE if the student meets the academic requirements for full or provisional admission.

Specific admissions criteria are listed in the degree program sections of the graduate catalog.
