1. Online Application
Complete our free online application and select your desired masters program.
2. Two Professional Letters of Recommendation
Your references should be either academic or professional – It’s up to you. But if you choose a professional reference, choose a former manager or supervisor. References from family members and/or friends are not accepted.
Consider individuals who will be able to speak to:
- Your ability to multi-task and remain focused with a significant workload
- Your ability to participate in a rigorous program that is, to a large part, self-directed
- Your strengths as a potential student.
If you don’t already have a polished resume, there is a great website that might help. It’s easy to use and it’s free. Simply go to www.resume.com and select a template to get started.
4. Personal Statement
The Statement of Purpose is your written “time to shine” and serves as your introduction to the admissions committee. In this 1-page essay, you’ll have the chance to tell your story.
Not sure what to include? Here are some helpful tips and guidelines:
- First, you’ll want to introduce yourself
- Discuss your background and motivation for pursuing your degree
- Talk about your future plans, once you have completed your degree
- Introduce relevant work experience and accolades from your career and how they relate to your anticipated studies – tell us why you’re a good candidate for the program
5. Official Transcripts
Our Admissions committee will need official transcripts for all undergraduate work from any colleges/universities you have attended. We are more than happy to help request these on your behalf! Please complete our secure, cloud-based document here. We ask that our prospective students have an undergraduate GPA of a 3.0 or higher.
