When an applicant applies for admission to a graduate program, the Program Director determines the applicant’s eligibility for admission. The Dean of the School of Professional and Graduate Studies (SPGS) issues a formal letter of admission to the applicant. Applicants who fail to enroll for the term for which they were granted admission must send a written notice to the Graduate and SPGS Admissions Office requesting a deferment of their admission or they will be required to reapply according to the catalog requirements in effect at the time of reapplication. An applicant who is granted a deferment must submit a non-refundable deposit of $100.
Candidates are required to schedule an advisement interview with the Chairperson/Director of their program or designee after the School of Professional and Graduate Studies issues a letter of acceptance into graduate studies. Applications will be considered as long as there is space remaining for the selected program/semester.
