Admissions Requirements

  1. Applicants are expected to have a baccalaureate or graduate degree from a regionally accredited college, university, or equivalent
  2. The UConn Graduate School does not require a third-party credential evaluation; however, the UConn Graduate School does accept evaluations from specific services as outlined on the Graduate School Admissions Page
  3. International Students: As program courses are primarily online, the University of Connecticut regrettably cannot sponsor a student visa for enrollment in this program. This is not an I-20 eligible program. Authorities Cite 8 CFR 214.2(f)(6)(i)(G)
  4. To be considered for admission to a graduate program, students must have earned a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 for the entire undergraduate or prior graduate degree. In exceptional circumstances, considerations may include:

    • Exceptional work in your entire final undergraduate year (3.5 or better), with a credit load >12-credits each semester

    • The UConn Graduate School admissions policy states that if English is not your primary language (a language used to communicate since childhood), you may be required to submit evidence of your English language proficiency
