Degree and GPA Requirements

Students must have earned a baccalaureate degree with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50 (on a 4.00 scale). Priority admission will be granted to students with a 3.00 cumulative GPA (on a 4.00 scale) if qualified applications exceed the number of spaces available.

Suggested Preparatory Coursework
