Graduates students must apply to the university AND to a specific graduate program simultaneously. Admissions decisions are made at the program level by the faculty. It is essential to follow the guidelines for applying to both the university and the program. Failure to do so, and to do so in a timely manner, may result in not being considered for the program and/or university admission. Application packets and deadlines may be found at Graduate Studies Applications and Deadlines. If you have questions about completing the university or program application, please contact the Graduate Studies Office at 562-985-8476 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
