Who May Apply
To be admitted at the freshman level, an applicant must be at least 16 years old and a graduate of an accredited secondary school. Graduates of unaccredited schools will be asked to take College Board Achievement Tests or the American College Test.
Home-schooled students and students attending unaccredited high schools should contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions prior to September of their senior year to determine if additional credentials such as SAT II Subject Exams should be submitted.
For older students, the results of the General Education Development (GED) test may be presented in place of a high school diploma.
Admission is competitive for all masters and doctoral programs. Among other criteria, admission is determined by:
- Department, degree, and concentration of interest
- Transcripts of an applicant's academic record
- Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General test scores
- Letters of recommendation
- An applicant's Grade Point Average (GPA)
