Our admission decisions are based on a composite of criteria applied to all of the credentials presented in your application. We do not use absolute minimum scores ("cutoffs") to make admissions decisions. However, those students with GRE scores at or above the 50th percentile and a GPA of at least 3.0 in the bachelor's degree are especially encouraged to apply.
Applicants who are interested in applying for an assistantship are encouraged to complete and submit their application materials to the Graduate School prior to the February deadline. Applications submitted after this date will be actively considered if space in the program is still available.
The application deadline for Fall admission is February 1. However, applications are considered year-round.
