Homepage / Admissions / Graduate / After you Apply

Your application and related materials (personal statement, official transcripts, test scores, letters of recommendation, writing sample-if applicable) are compiled by the Graduate School to create your applicant file. The application file is complete when all required documents are received and you have paid the $25.00 application fee.

The Graduate School sends completed application files to the Department/Program to which you are applying for admission.

The Department/Program you are applying to will contact you to schedule your admission interview (Clinical Psychology program applicants should contact the Clinical Psychology Department to schedule an interview).

Your completed file and related materials will be thoroughly reviewed by the Department/Program Graduate Admissions Committee and Program Director and they will make a decision about your acceptance to the program.

The Department/Program Graduate Admissions Committee will forward their recommendation to the Dean of the Graduate School who approves all graduate admissions. Only written notice from the Dean of the Graduate School constitutes approval of admission.

If a program receives more qualified applicants than can be instructed or accommodated by current university resources, a qualified applicant may be denied admission by the Department/Program Graduate Admissions Committee. Some programs may offer waitlisting or suggest reapplication for the next admission cycle of the program.

Notification of Admission Decision
You will be notified of your admission status by written notice and official communication from the Dean of the Graduate School.
