How to join the Wolf Pack

Applying to our graduate program is simple. To get started, follow these three easy steps: 




  • Make sure all your official transcripts have been submitted - if you attended more than one institution, be sure to request official from each school.
    • International Applicants: All transcripts that are not in English must be evaluated. SPANTRAN is a recommended service. An official course-by-course evaluation must be included.
  • Take the GRE or GMAT (if required) and send in all scores.
  • Request your letters of recommendations. 
  • Update your resume and write your personal statement.
  • If you are applying to the School of Music, review the College of Music & Media audition requirements.

You can check your application status anytime. Keep in touch with the graduate admissions office and let us know about changes in your academic profile. Be patient, once your file is complete it is forwarded to your program for review. Once a decision is rendered by the department, admission decisions are released electronically.
