The Graduate College Handbook

for students, faculty and staff – August 2017

Chapter 1: Admission to the Graduate College

Students must apply to and be admitted to the Graduate College through the standard admission process. Students may or may not be degree-seeking, and admission procedures differ based on this distinction. Except in the case of non-degree admission, students may only be admitted to the Graduate College if first approved and referred for admission by the academic program of study. Admission procedures and policies also differ depending on whether an applicant is defined as having domestic or international citizenship.
