Any student with a U.S. bachelor's degree or a comparable foreign degree from a recognized college or university may apply to the Graduate School Office of Admissions. Applicants with the necessary background for their chosen major field, an excellent scholastic record from an approved college or university, and appropriate professional qualifications may be admitted for graduate work on recommendation of the graduate faculty in the proposed major field and approval of the director of graduate studies. The Graduate School operational standard for admission is an undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.00. Many programs prefer a higher GPA. Applicants should consult the program to which they are applying for more specific information about admission standards.
