- Completed Application including applicant's statement of purpose and goals
- Bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited or internationally recognized college or university with appropriate credits as indicated by transcripts.
- Undergraduate cumulative grade point average of 3.00 (B) or higher.

- For teacher certification programs, if the undergraduate cumulative grade point average is between a 2.5 and a 2.99, the student may be admitted provisionally. Full acceptance into a graduate teacher certification program is contingent upon a minimum GPA of 3.0 in graduate studies during the provisional admission period.
- Applicants who have been provisionally accepted must complete all outstanding admission requirements before they will be permitted to register beyond the credit limit. That limit is 6 credits.
Admission to Class
Applicants who have not completed the application process may be permitted to take up to 6 graduate credits on the basis of a signed application and proof of a bachelor's degree (copy of diploma or transcript) from a regionally accredited institution of higher education. Any of the courses taken under Temporary Status may be applied to a degree program with advisor's approval only after the student is fully accepted and only if he/she applies to a particular program within the limited number of hours.
Candidates under this status will not be allowed to register for courses beyond the credit limitation. Candidates must declare a major by the end of 6 credit hours. Candidates may not matriculate into a program beyond that credit limit.
Non-Degree and Guest Students
The normal limit is 6 credits, as above. Exceptions will be considered by the Dean's office.
