How to Begin the Application Process

You’ll create your application account here. If you’re applying to a graduate program, you’ll select “Graduate Regular” as your round. If you are returning to finish your program and have not attended in over a year, you'll select "Graduate Readmit". If you are seeking to take a few classes, but not complete a program, you'll select "Graduate Non-Matric". You’ll then follow the prompts along each section as you go through the application.

**If you are applying to the Physician Assistant program you will submit an application through CASPA.

Required Materials

You’ll upload a personal statement (some programs have a specific prompt that you’ll respond to) and a copy of your resume.

Recommendation Letters

Some programs require at least two letters of recommendation. Please refer to the program page for more information on this requirement. You can complete the recommendation through the application system by putting in the name and email of your provider. The system will contact them to complete the reference. The notification email may be sent to the junk or spam folder, so be sure to follow up with your provider. We also accept recommendations by email, mail, or fax.

Test Scores

Certain programs require test scores. You can find a guide on the test score section of the application, or refer to your program page for further clarification. You can upload a copy of your score report. If you have not yet taken the test, you can include the date in which you expect to take it.

Copies of Transcripts

A copy of your transcript is acceptable for review purposes. You can upload a copy right to the application. If there are any issues with the upload, we will contact you. Official transcripts are required once students have been accepted and they have received their degree. A transcript is considered official if it is sent directly to our office by the school and has the degree conferred on it.

After you have submitted your application, please allow for one business day for your materials to be processed and your checklist updated. You can check your status page to see any updates on your application, and we will be in touch with you if there are any additional materials that we require.
