Application Requirements

An online application form is required that contains questions about your personal and educational background. Additional requirements (below) can be submitted along with your online application or separately:

  • Personal Statement
    • The Personal Statement gives you an opportunity to describe your academic, career, and personal objectives. Please limit your response to three double-spaced, typed pages.
  • Resume
  • Letter of Recommendation
    • Contact information for one recommender is required during the online application process. This person should be able to evaluate your qualification and potential for success in our program. You can choose to use a professional or academic reference. Only one recommendation is required but additional recommendations may be submitted if desired.
    • Recommenders will be contacted via email to submit their recommendation online. If they prefer otherwise they can email or mail a copy to the Admissions Office along with this recommendation form.
  • Transcripts
    • Unofficial transcripts may be submitted for evaluation purposes. If admitted and you choose to matriculate, official transcripts must be submitted from all college or universities attended. Translated copies must be submitted for International students.
  • $75 non-refundable application fee

Admission Interviews

A phone, Skype, Zoom, or on-campus interview is a requirement for admission. The Office of Admissions may schedule individual interviews once your application is completed if the admissions committee wishes to invite you based on your qualifications.

Application Review

The Admissions Committee is made up of faculty and senior administrators who will thoroughly and conscientiously review each application. Applications will be considered in the context of the total applicant pool, as well as in relationship to our general admissions standards. We do not use arbitrary grade point averages or test score cutoffs.

All admissions decisions are final for the academic year in which they are rendered.

Admitted Students

Admitted students are required to submit a $250 non-refundable enrollment fee to hold their spot in the program. Additionally, counselors maintain contact with admitted students to ensure all official documents are received.

Admitted students also receive regular communication from the Admissions Office with important information about preparing for study, student life, housing, orientation, and other topics of interest.

The MSCM program is unable to provide an I-20 for international applicants since all course offerings will be online. International students interested in completing the MSCM program abroad are welcome to apply.
