Admissions Status

If you need assistance in determining the admissions status appropriate for you (e.g., matriculant, non-matriculant, non-degree or auditor), please refer to the Graduate Admissions Status page or call the Graduate Admissions Office at the appropriate campus (See Campus Information below.)

Transcripts

Applicants are responsible for submitting official transcripts from all post-secondary schools attended. Note: An official transcript is one which has been signed by the registrar, carries the school seal and has been sent directly from the school to the Graduate Admissions Office. All credentials become the property of the University and cannot be returned to the applicant. Foreign educational credentials must be submitted with a certified English translation and may require evaluation by a University approved agency.

Graduate Entrance Examinations

Required entrance examinations should be taken far enough in advance of your anticipated enrollment date so that the scores can be received and evaluated prior to the beginning of the semester. Official test scores for all entrance examinations must be sent directly to the Graduate Admissions Office at the appropriate campus. Please be sure to use the correct campus code number (See Campus Information below.) You may consult the Graduate Studies Bulletin to determine which tests are required for your intended program of study. Information on the various examination programs can be obtained from the Graduate Admissions Office (GRE, GMAT, TOEFL), the School of Education (PRAXIS), and the Center for Psychological Services (MAT) or by calling, faxing or writing the appropriate testing service.

Letters of Recommendation

Letters of recommendation are required for most graduate degree programs. Please check the requirements specific to your intended field of study in the Graduate Studies Bulletin. Send all letters of recommendation to the Graduate Admissions Office at the appropriate campus (See Campus Information below.)

Interviews

Personal interviews are not generally required but may be requested as part of the admissions process. Students must check the specific admissions requirements for the program in which they are interested.

Students Whose Native Language is not English

All applicants whose native language is not English, and have not earned a degree at an English-speaking college or university, are required to sit for the TOEFL or IELTS Examination. The minimum required TOEFL score is 550 for the paper-based test, 213 for the computer-based test and 79 on the Internet-based test. The ELS Language Center Certificate of completion of the Intensive English Language Program (Level 112) is accepted in lieu of TOEFL or IELTS. If you require English Language proficiency training, please visit the ELS website at www.els.com or write to tea@els.edu.
