While grade point averages and test scores are important, most programs consider a number of factors for admission. Each department on campus has its own requirements. In general, most graduate programs require:

  • A Bachelor degree (or higher) or the equivalent from an accredited/government-recognized university. These degrees are generally four-year-long programs.
  • B average or higher from your undergraduate study - 3.0/4.0 GPA
  • Most departments require that you take the GRE. Study and preparation before taking the GRE is recommended.
  • Evidence of English language proficiency
  • 3 letters of recommendation, a personal statement, and undergraduate transcripts.
  • Evidence of financial support.
