APPLYING TO GRAD SCHOOL
The graduate application process is similar to the process you went through for college. In general, you will need to submit:
Application | Personal Statement | Resume | Letters of Recommendation
Application Fee | Test Scores | Official College Transcripts | Financial Aid Application
When you are researching schools, keep in mind that deadlines vary based on the graduate school and the program. Most applications are due between December and January, but some programs may have rolling admissions as well. The best thing to do would be to narrow your list of schools, note the deadlines, and plan accordingly. We can help! (request an appointment with a counselor via OrangeLink)
Determing how many schools you want to apply to is also important because it costs money to take graduate exams and apply to graduate school. We suggest applying to a range of graduate programs including both “safety” and “reach” schools to maximize your chances at getting accepted.
