Application Process

Please fill out the Graduate School Application

Letters of Recommendation

Three letters of recommendation are required, and must be submitted electronically.  Directions for this can be found with the Graduate School Application.


We require that you send a copy of a transcript from each undergraduate institute that you attend. The best way to do this is to scan a copy of your official transcript (issued by your college or university) from each college or university you have attended and upload it. Please do not mail transcripts to the department or the Graduate School.  No paper transcripts will be accepted during the application process.

If you are offered admission, you will be required to submit paper official transcripts.  Please do not send them until they are requested.

Exam Scores 

Please Note: GRE scores are no longer required

The Graduate School requires the TOEFL or IELTS exam for international applicants unless they qualify for an automatic waiver. For further information on TOEFL requirements, please see the Graduate School Admission Requirements.

All of the above material is required; none can be waived.
