Admission Preferences and Prerequisites
Admission requires a baccalaureate degree or higher from an accredited college or university. The admissions committee reviews applicants according to their personal statements, background and experience, record of academic achievement, demonstrated academic potential, letters of recommendation, compatibility of interests with program faculty, and other factors. Test scores and GPAs provide competitive points of reference for admission but are not alone decisive in the admissions review.
It is preferred that applicants hold a baccalaureate degree with coursework in the basic sciences. Each specialty area requires slightly different preparation.
Occupational and Environmental Health Nursing applicants must have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited school of nursing.
Doctoral applicants are expected to substantially exceed the general admission preferences.
Applications are reviewed by the admissions committee throughout the year. If the committee recommends admission based on criteria of the specialty area and the associate dean approves, the applicant receives an official letter offering admission.
