Master’s Degree Admissions


Applications for admission are accepted at any time and are processed and reviewed upon receipt of all necessary documents, on a case-by-case basis. Master’s courses are available during each term with two intake dates per semester. Students whose application packages are incomplete will be classified as decision-pending.

Full Acceptance Status

For full acceptance, students must have a completed undergraduate degree from an accredited institution or an international equivalent, with a cumulative GPA of no less than 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. In addition, students must also meet the program-specific prerequisites for their intended program.

Provisional Acceptance Status

Students who have not met the 3.0 undergraduate cumulative GPA requirements or do not meet all of the program specific prerequisites are provided the opportunity to gain full acceptance. Depending on the degree program, additional information may be requested. In this case, students are provisionally admitted and limited to three courses of enrollment. To achieve full acceptance, provisional students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA in their first three graduate courses. Upon doing so, students are automatically converted to full acceptance status. If a provisional student fails to achieve a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA after completing three courses, then he or she will be academically dismissed, and will not be permitted to enroll in any further courses.

Decision-Pending Status

Students with incomplete application packages (missing transcripts, missing essay, etc.) are classified as decision-pending until the application package is complete.

Decision-pending students who have been approved to register are limited to two courses of enrollment and are not permitted to enroll in a third class until their applications are complete.

Program-Specific Prerequisites

Generally, to apply to a graduate degree program, you should have completed a bachelor’s degree or be completing a bachelor’s degree prior to enrollment and should have a 3.0 cumulative grade point average or higher. Some Master of Science programs have additional technical competency requirements.
