Each applicant must hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited United States institution of higher learning or four years of equivalent full-time college work from an accredited foreign institution.
The minimum undergraduate grade point average (GPA) required for admission is 3.00 on a 4.00 scale. Individual programs may require appropriate entrance test scores such as the GRE or GMAT. Although entrance test scores by themselves do not constitute the sole or final criterion for granting or denying admission to any student, each program that uses test scores will consider them, in combination with other criteria, as an essential part of the requirements for granting full admission.
Applicants who hold a master's degree are not required to submit scores on GRE or GMAT.
Admission may be withdrawn if it was granted on the basis of substantially incorrect information or on the omission of relevant facts, which, if known at the time of the admission, would have resulted in denial. In order to complete the application process, applicants must submit to the Graduate School the following documents unless otherwise indicated by policy:
- An application for graduate admission.
- An application fee.
- An official transcript of the bachelor's degree sent to the Graduate School by the issuing institution.
- An official record of the score on the aptitude portions of the GRE or GMAT, whichever is appropriate, and when required, sent directly to the Graduate School by the testing agency.
