Categories of Admission

Regular admission status will be granted to applicants who have met all entrance requirements prescribed by the College of Graduate Studies, the department and the program to which they apply.   No student will be granted a regular admission status unless all materials have been submitted to the College of Graduate Studies as per college, departmental or program admission requirements.   It is the applicant’s responsibility to understand all college, department, and program specific admission requirements for their selected graduate department.

Conditional admission status may be granted to applicants who have met all entrance requirements prescribed by the College of Graduate Studies, the department and the program to which they apply.   Under conditional status, unofficial transcripts and entrance exams may be submitted until the official documents are received by the Graduate Admissions office.   It is the applicant’s responsibility to understand specific admission requirements and submit official transcripts and entrance exams by the 10th day of classes (for 8-week sessions, the 6th day of class is the deadline for submitting official documents) for the first registered semester in which the student has applied. After all official documents are received, the applicant will be granted Regular admission status.   Applicants who do not submit all official documents in the prescribed time period above will be dropped from all classes in which they are enrolled.   If, within the department, an appeal process seems warranted, the departmental chair will submit an appeal letter to the Dean, College of Graduate Studies.
