  1. Official transcripts from all institutions from which a bachelor’s degree or higher was obtained AND official transcripts for all work completed after obtaining the bachelor’s degree, including undergraduate and graduate coursework. Junior/community college transcripts are NOT required. (Applicants who are applying for nursing programs and have earned an Associate’s of Science-Nursing should include those transcripts.)

              International applicants, please mail official transcripts to:

  2. Results from a standardized, graduate-level exam (typically the GRE or GMAT). Applicants may contact the department of their major to determine whether other results are acceptable.
  3. Three letters of recommendation from individuals who can speak to the applicant’s academic performance. Applicants may contact the department of their major to determine if the department will accept non-academic recommenders.
  4. Other supplemental materials as required by departments, such as a résumé, statement of purpose, writing sample, etc. Applicants may contact the department of their major for additional information regarding these supplemental documents.
