Typical Application Process

Usually you will be required to supply the following:

  • A competed application (See hints below)
  • A Resume-click here for resume webpage
  • An official transcript from the Registrar's Office
  • A personal essay/statement
  • The required tests such as the GRE, GMAT, MCAT etc.
  • The application fee (usually around $50.00)
  • References - Choosing, approaching and securing good references
  • The Graduate School Admissions Interview-not always required but be prepared.

Here are some hints for completing the application form:

  • Upon receiving the application, make copies of it, and use these to rough out your answers to each question.
  • When your answers are set, type your application. It should be neat and devoid of spelling errors or typos.
  • Answer all questions.
  • Adhere to the deadline.
