PhD – FAQs

Application/Admission Process

What is the application deadline?
Consideration of applications begins on February 1 for admission to the fall semester. Admissions decisions are not made for the spring semester. It is particularly important for applicants to have taken the GRE before submitting an application.

May I transfer Credits?
The PhD program does not accept transfer credits from masters-level coursework. If you have PhD coursework from another university, you can petition the PhD director to transfer credits to the program. The limit is 12 credits.

Program Costs

How much does the program cost?
Tuition and fee charges are determined by the Board of Governors annually in mid-July. See Program Cost/Financial Aid for current costs and fees.


Who can I see about course advisement and registration issues?
Graduate students see the Assistant Dean for Graduate Programs for registration questions and advisement. Advisement is provided by appointment only. See Registration/Advisement for more information.
