Admission Expectation

Applicants must hold, or be in the process of completing, a baccalaureate degree (for some programs a master’s degree is also required.) The degree must be earned from a regionally accredited college or university in the United States (the college or university must be regionally accredited at the time of enrollment and when the degree was conferred) or the foreign equivalent.

In addition, each program has specific application requirements that may include prior experience, specific courses, test scores, or a portfolio. Please carefully check your program’s application requirements. Only completed applications will be reviewed for admission and scholarship consideration.
