The Admissions Committee is charged with identifying students most likely to be successful in the program and those who, if accepted, enhance the program due to their location, background, or diversity. The Admissions Committee meets shortly after the application deadline in the fall and spring to select new admissions for the upcoming academic semester. There are three different classifications for program acceptance: full, provisional, and restricted.
- A student who has been admitted to the program and has met all of the requirements for admission.
- A student who has been admitted to the program but does not meet all of the requirements for admission related to previous coursework. Once a student has completed deficient courses, the program will ask the Graduate College to modify the student's provisional status to full admission status.
- A student who has been admitted to the program but did not graduate in the upper half of their undergraduate degree program. Once a student has taken at least 9 credits of graduate courses at a GPA of 3.0 or above the program will ask the Graduate College to modify the student's restricted status to full admission status.
