Online Admission Requirements

The admission process for online accelerated programs is simple and streamlined. You can get started right away, without taking time away from your professional or personal commitments. Choose which program you are interested in to learn more.

To ensure that students, university support units, staff and faculty are fully prepared to start strong in the online accelerated program term, requests to move start terms backwards filed after the application deadline date at 9pm PDT/12am EST cannot be processed. (Example: if you apply to start in summer, you cannot move backwards to start in spring.) If the term you intend to start in is not listed in your application drop down selections, you have missed the deadline time for that start date. Please do not select the next term in the hope that The Graduate Programs Office can move your start term backwards to accommodate a late application after the deadline – we are unable to process these requests.
