Additional notes about our application process

Reviewing of materials (and notifying candidates) will begin in January; faculty of each area will conduct interviews with promising candidates in February. We will notify interviewees of their status before the University's April 15th deadline. Because of the large number of applicants, interviews are arranged by invitation only. We regret that we cannot honor requests for interviews initiated by applicants.

Applicants who have completed graduate work at other universities are evaluated by the same criteria as other students. Transfer of credit for graduate work with approval can be made up to a state—mandated maximum of 30 hours, but these arrangements cannot be made until after an applicant is offered admission.
