Describe past experiences (e.g. personal, academic, professional and research experiences) that have influenced your current career preparation objectives.
Describe the areas in which you are interested in pursuing research during your doctoral studies.
Two letters of recommendation: You must submit two letters of recommendation that speak to your ability to successfully complete the program and your leadership potential. Recommendations from supervisors are preferred.
Standardized test scores: The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) (highly recommended), GRE, or any graduate equivalency exam.
$70 application fee
Transcripts: When you apply, you must provide an unofficial transcript from the institutions where you earned your bachelor's and master's degrees. You must also submit transcripts from any additional college or university level coursework.
If you are accepted into the program, you will need to submit final official transcripts from your bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and any additional college or university level coursework prior to registering for classes. Should you be admitted, the registration process will quickly follow, so we encourage you to request official transcripts as soon as possible.
