Graduate Program Requirements

Graduate admission is granted to a specific department and for a specific campus. Applicants ordinarily will be expected to hold baccalaureate degrees from colleges or universities of recognized standing prior to registration as graduate students. Three-year Bologna bachelor's degree recipients are eligible for admission. Applicants for a master's or doctoral degree program should have achieved a 3.0 grade point index or higher for the baccalaureate degree or have other academic indices indicating superior performance.

For additional information concerning requirements for admission, please consult specific departments/programs on the appropriate campuses listed below. Some graduate programs have requirements for admission that exceed the general Graduate School requirements.
