What to Expect
Once the applicant's file is complete, with all items required submitted in full, the file is forwarded to the department for a program acceptance decision. The department notifies the Office of Graduate Admissions which in turn notifies the applicant.
The Graduate Center notifies students of their admission status. A letter is sent when a) a program acceptance decision has been received from the department and the student is admitted to the university, or b) the applicant does not meet minimum university admission requirements and is denied admission.
If a student earned a baccalaureate GPA between 2.50 and 2.99, that student will be fully admitted provisionally, which means a B (3.0) must be earned in each course for the first 12 units to stay in the program and the university. Earning less than a 3.0 in these first courses may jeopardize the student's progress at the university.
