We take the time to consider your application as a whole. It is critical that you submit a complete application by the application deadline. There is no one component that weighs more heavily than another; being less strong in one area can be balanced out by another. Additionally, your personal statement is an opportunity to address any deficiencies in your application.
Successful applicants take the time to complete each piece of the application. They also ensure the entire package represents who they are as a student and how they envision using a master's degree from our program.
Important note: The university has a minimum grade point average (GPA) for graduate assistantship eligibility campus wide. SO, to be eligible for the Fellows Programs, you must have at least a 2.8 GPA for your last 60 hours of undergraduate work. Alternately, if you have taken nine or more hours of graduate credit, you must have at least a 3.0 GPA for your graduate courses.
