The interviews focus on assessing factors such as emotional maturity, related professional or undergraduate experience, readiness for the program, life experiences, attitude, compatibility with department goals, and communication/interpersonal skills.
Because of the change in our admissions requirements this year, we recognize that not all applicants will be able to take the GRE before February 15. If you are unable to submit your GRE score by that date, your application will be considered based on the other information, and a decision will be made whether to invite you to March 10-12 Interview Days. However, you will need to submit your GRE by March 15 so that can be considered in the final admission decision.
Admission to the program is competitive. Selected applicants will be invited to campus for a two-day interview process which will include an interview for the graduate program and interviews for various assistantships.
Interview days for the program and available graduate assistantships will be in March. Selected applicants will be invited to attend interview days.
Review of completed applications will begin on February 1; however, the application priority deadline is February 15. Applications after that date will be reviewed if spaces are still available in the Fall class.
