Admission Procedure

Application for admission must be made upon forms available at the Graduate School Office. The application must be supported by official transcripts of the applicant's entire academic record, including records of any advanced work which may have been done in another institution. Official results of the Graduate Record Examination (General Test and one Subject Test), and two letters of recommendation from professors, preferably those who taught in the field of the major subject, are required in further support of the application. Send all parts of the application under one cover (envelope) with the $40 fee to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

The non-refundable application fee of $40 is payable at the time of application. Since the application fee is non-refundable, applicants are urged to read carefully the admission requirements before submitting an application.

In general, applications for admissions must be received by July 15 for admission in the fall semester, but applicants should check with individual departments as many departments have a much earlier deadline. Foreign student applications and all supporting documents must be received by April 15 for admission in the fall semester. Those who wish to be considered for financial aid awards should complete applications by February 1.
