Application Procedure 

Please read this entire webpage before you apply. General application information can be obtained at the  Graduate School website   or one can go straight to the  application website .

Application files are reviewed by the department's Graduate Admissions Committee. Upon the recommendation of the Admissions Committee, the Graduate Program Director will authorize an offer of admission to either our M.S. or Ph.D. program with an initial placement in one of the department's five graduate tracks. All students admitted to the doctoral program will automatically be considered for financial support if the application is submitted by the due date for financial support. M.S. students are not eligible for support.

Provisional Admission: Occasionally, students with marginal grades but signs of greater academic potential are offered provisional admission to our graduate program. Their admission offer will stipulate that they must take courses in their first semester and earn at least a B average in them. Upon satisfying these conditions, they will be allowed to matriculate into regular M.S. or Ph.D. student status.
