Academic Requirements

General Requirements

Admission to the University of New Haven Graduate School requires that applicants hold a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or from a foreign institution that is recognized by its jurisdictional Ministry of Education for granting baccalaureate degrees. Individual programs may have additional requirements for admission, details of which are included in the program listings in this catalog. For most programs, admission decisions are based primarily on an applicant’s undergraduate record. A prospective student who is currently completing undergraduate study should submit an official transcript complete to the date of application. In such cases, an admission decision may be made on the basis of a partial transcript, contingent upon completion of the baccalaureate degree. Registration is not permitted until a final, official transcript is submitted to the Graduate Admissions Office. Students may submit scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), GMAT, PRAXIS, or the Miller Analogies Test in support of their application. Students applying to certain programs are required to have test scores from such examinations sent directly from the testing service to the Graduate Admissions Office. Information regarding specific requirements for submission of test scores is contained in the program descriptions elsewhere in this catalog.

Admission of International Students

University of New Haven graduate programs are open to qualified international students. To qualify, a prospective student must have completed sufficient undergraduate preparation in a degree program acceptable to the Graduate School. The Graduate School operates on a trimester system. The fall term begins in early September, the winter term begins in early January, and the spring term begins in early April.

Because the review of international applications takes considerable time, it is important that the application and supporting materials be received by the Graduate Admissions Office prior to the deadlines outlined in the international student information packet.

U.S. Immigration regulations require that a person holding student status make satisfactory progress toward a degree. This requires full-time study, which is generally interpreted to mean completing at least three courses (9 credits) each trimester. Prospective international students should note that graduate certificates, the Executive MBA, the mechanical engineering master’s program, and the human nutrition master’s program are not designed to permit full-time study. Also, the programs in the Education Department do not accept international student applications.

To apply for admission to the Graduate School and to be ready to begin study, prospective international students must complete the steps outlined in the following section.
