Admission to Graduate Standing

To be admitted to graduate standing, a student must have 1) earned a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or from an institution with substantially equivalent requirements for a baccalaureate degree and must have a GPA of 3.0 or better on the last 60.0 credit hours of attempted coursework prior to receiving the baccalaureate degree and 2) present satisfactory scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or other national standard test.

Admission to graduate standing does not admit a student to a specific program of study leading to a graduate degree. Therefore, in addition to satisfying the general requirements of the Graduate School, the applicant must also comply with the specific requirements and have the approval of the department in which graduate study is desired.
