Applicants will be reviewed holistically, and the following material and criteria will be considered in the decision process:
Once all admissions materials are received, the admissions committee will review all applications in full. After the initial review of applications, qualified applicants will be invited to campus during the spring semester for in-person interviews for the program and for open graduate research assistantship positions. The interview days are February 25th and 26th.
