GR Admission Requirements

General Admissions Information for Master in Urban and Regional Planning

Admission requirements of the MURP program include those required by the graduate school as well as the following:

  • Two letters of recommendation submitted to the planning graduate advisor of the Department of Planning and Public Administration. Both letters should be from instructors familiar with the applicant's undergraduate or, where applicable, graduate academic record. In the event the applicant has professional planning experience, letters may come from a supervisor or person familiar with planning work of the applicant.
  • All applicants shall also submit a personal letter of intent explaining why they wish to study planning and outlining their educational and career goals.
  • All applicants for the program must have completed a class in statistics prior to entry into the program or complete a course while in the program. In the latter case, the credits for the class will not be included in the 72 credits required for the degree.

One must also fill out EWU's graduate application form. For faster processing of one's graduate application form, the graduate department requests prospective students to use the online submission form. One may apply online for graduate admission through EagleNET, Eastern Washington University's student services web site using the button below.
