Program Admissions

In addition to the general requirements of the university, there are specific requirements for admission to each program. Check the [Masters and Advanced Credentials] program pages for program requirement and the most current admissions deadlines. Assistance with the Admissions process is available from the program coordinator or program recruiters.

Program Planning

A proper program plan is essential to achieving your goal of master's degree. A program plan lists the specific course requirements to be completed before the master's degree can be awarded. Students should meet with a faculty advisor to fill out their program plan. It is helpful for students to fill out a program plan as early as possible, however it should not be submitted for advancement to candidacy until all program admission requirements have been met, and at least 12 units have been successfully completed.
