To start the application process, follow these steps:

  1. Review our admission requirements before applying, particularly the foreign language proficiency requirements.

Apply by our next priority scholarship deadline to be considered for a merit scholarship. *If you're applying for spring semester, please note that that some of our master's programs do not admit students for spring semester.
  3. Read the application instructions and gather all of the materials - including transcripts, letters of recommendation, statement of purpose, resume and language proficiency assessments - needed to complete your application.
  4. When you're ready, start our online application or download the paper application. You will create a username and password to complete the online application, and you may return to complete it at any time. To submit your application, you must pay a $50 application fee.
