Admission


Admission to the Graduate Program

Admission to the College is based upon the academic and personal qualifications of applicants and is granted without regard to age, color, disability, marital status, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, race, or status as a disabled or Vietnam-era veteran. The candidate selection process is highly competitive; the College attempts to identify those individuals who will most benefit from the curricular and co-curricular programs offered. Applicants can be considered for a master’s degree program or as non-matriculated graduate students.

All applicants seeking admission as degree or non-degree students must provide evidence of (1) having earned a baccalaureate degree at an accredited institution of higher education, and (2) an undergraduate record which indicates a potential for success in graduate study.
