The Committee on Admissions will decide whether an applicants' scholastic record and general background indicate sufficient ability for graduate study. As noted above, the Committee may require submission of scores of the Graduate Record Examination when a student's grade point average is under 2.75. Applicants are notified of their admission status by formal letter. Students are admitted for enrollment in the fall, spring, and summer sessions. Students who have been admitted on a provisional basis may take up to two courses as non-matriculated students, however, approval from the graduate program director is required to do this.
The preferred admission period for international students is the fall semester. These applicants should apply by July 15. Immigration policies preclude interviews with most international students, therefore, the Department of Health Services reserves the right to require enrollment in ELS causes as a conclusion for matriculation.
