Applications are generally considered for entrance in the Fall semester. Courses are sequenced to deliver a cohesive educational experience and students are expected to follow the established course sequence for their program. Students entering the program in Spring or Summer may not be eligible to enter the course sequence at that time but may take electives or other required courses. This will necessarily extend the duration of the degree program.

Admission to the Graduate Program is subject to the rules, regulations and procedures of the Graduate School as stipulated in the University Graduate Bulletin. It is the responsibility of each student to understand these requirements and to ensure that they are met.

The minimum requirement for applications to all Masters’ Degrees programs is a 3.0 GPA (cumulative grade point average).

International Students are required to submit a TOEFL score of a minimum of 80 or IELTS of 6.5 (please use the University code 5815). For Fall 2020 entry only the Duolingo test with a minimum score of 105 is also accepted.
