What are the requirements for Admission?Fall2005LS_76

The MPA program admits students who desire a quality education in a student-centered learning environment.  Admission to the program requires a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution, completion of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and three letters of recommendation.  Minimum standards for unconditional admission are a score of 300 on the GRE and an overall undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or a GPA of 3.2 or more in the last 60 hours of the undergraduate degree.  Applicants failing to meet these requirements may be considered for a conditional (probationary) admission if their undergraduate grade point is above a 2.5.


Applications for admission are made online at the Graduate School’s website. Applications are taken for Fall semesters only. Applications received by May 1 each year will be given priority consideration.  The application deadline for Fall admission is July 1 each year. Click here to apply now!
