Graduate Admissions

Application Process

Applications can be submitted as early as nine months in advance. Verify the appropriate starting term for the program that you select because terms vary based on the academic program.

Please be advised, applications for College of Business master’s and certificate programs are processed as they are received and offers of acceptance are made on a rolling basis; therefore we strongly encourage applicants to apply as early as possible during the application period.

This rolling admissions process allows qualified individuals to be admitted on a continual basis until capacity is reached. Most importantly, by meeting the early application deadline, candidates are considered for possible scholarship opportunities. Applicants who meet the late application deadline are not guaranteed a decision for the applied semester. Late applications may be deferred for consideration to the next available admission term by program.

Beginning March 16 all applicants including non-U.S. citizens (international), U.S. citizens (domestic) or permanent residents who have earned university-level credit from foreign institutions are required to submit an evaluation form from an approved Foreign Credential Agency with their transcripts from all foreign universities attended.

Having the evaluation completed at the time of application submission will expedite the admissions process.
