Before you submit your online application, you will be assessed a non-refundable $75 application processing fee. Applicants are responsible for paying this fee whether or not they submit any supporting materials, are offered admission, or choose to enroll.
Online Graduate Application Supplemental Form - ASF (Part II)
After electronically submitting the Online Graduate Application (Part I), applicants will receive an e-mail from graduate admissions with instructions on how to file ASF (Part II) of their application. This email usually arrives within 2 business days of submitting Part I online, but in peak times may take as long as 3-5 business days.
Applicants must request transcripts be forwarded to the Graduate Admissions Office from each institution where undergraduate or prior graduate work was undertaken. Sealed envelopes of transcripts that meet the requirements below must be submitted; copies will not suffice. Transcripts of course work and degrees from University of Maryland need not be submitted.
Transcripts must bear the signature of the registrar and seal of the granting institution and should include the years of attendance, courses taken, grades received, class standing and any degree, certificate or diploma received. If you anticipate a serious delay in official transcripts arriving, you may submit unofficial copies to the School (see submission addresses below) for review purposes only. Official admission (and registration for classes) cannot occur until all official transcripts have been received by the Graduate Admissions Office.
Letters of Recommendation
Three recommendations are required from professors or others who can assess the quality of the applicant’s potential to succeed in the graduate program they have selected.
The online ASF (Part II), provides an electronic recommendation form, which facilitates submission and receipt in most cases. Applicants can also download the Recommendation Letter Forms and add the applicant’s full name, so that the Graduate School can attach the recommendation letter upon receipt. All recommendations must be submitted directly to the Graduate School by the person providing the recommendation (online or in a sealed envelope).
Statement of Goals, Experiences and Research Interests
All programs require applicants to prepare a statement of their goals and objectives in pursuing graduate study. This should be submitted using the ASF online.
All programs require applicants to provide an up-to-date resume via the online ASF (Part II).
Graduate Record Examination
A GRE score is required to be sent directly to the University by the testing Authority. The Code for the GRE is 5814.
