Graduate Admission & Tuition Information

Our department is here to help you in every way possible on your journey to apply, register, and start a program. We are ready to assist you with your questions.

Our programs allow you to begin in fall, spring or summer. We encourage you to complete the application process as early as possible, allowing you the opportunity to select the classes of your choice, on the days that work best for you. Our classes are offered in the evenings and on Saturdays.

Domestic applicants are encouraged to submit their application at least one month before the semester begins. International applicants residing outside the U.S. are encouraged to submit their application at least four months prior to the start of the term. Applications received after these timelines are considered on a space available basis. Note for international applicants: Please see the International Graduate Admissions page for details.

Students can expect to receive an admission decision letter, via email, approximately three to five weeks upon completion of their application. International applications may require additional review.
