School of Graduate Studies

Climb higher in your career and in life.

Refine your skills and become a leader in your field.

We all have our own idea of where we’re going, and what it will look like when we arrive. That journey is unique to you. It’s exciting. It’s fulfilling. It’s worth it. And you’re ready. You’re confident. Because you’ve done it before.

Now, it's time for your climb to continue.

Right here ...

Through a blend of online, hybrid and in-person options we offer advanced education in nearly 30 master’s, doctoral and professional certifications. Our graduate programs cover a wide range of disciplines from business administration to exercise science to special education, as well as emerging career fields like information technology and community health.

Your journey onward awaits

Admission to any graduate program may seem daunting, but here you’re not alone. Our path offers a personal guide with a committed graduate admissions director who will walk you through the process step by step.

Admission requirements vary depending on the program but typically include:

  • Official transcripts from an accredited academic institution indicating an earned baccalaureate degree and transcripts from all institutions where you’ve earned undergraduate or graduate college credit.
  • Letters of recommendation
  • A current resume
  • For some programs, a GMAT or GRE score

For programs with rolling admission: Completed application files must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the start of the semester in which you’re applying. Though our Summer Semester is broken into three sessions, anyone applying for the summer should have a completed packet accepted into a program prior to the first day of the Summer Semester.
