Program and Degree Information


The Doctoral program requires all applicants to take the Graduate Records Examination or the Graduate Management Admissions Test. Students who do not have an academic degree from a country where English is the primary language must also take the Test of English as a Foreign Language. Please indicate the dates on which you took the appropriate tests and the scores you received, or the dates on which you plan to take the tests.



Please list all post-secondary educational institutions you have attended. Include the code, (see below) the name and address of the institution, the dates attended (from what date to what date), the type of degree you received, and the date you received it, what you majored in, what your G.P.A. was, and what the highest possible G.P.A. is at that institution. (The Educational Testing Service has a system of five-digit codes for educational institutions. You can obtain an institution's ETS code by contacting the institution or looking through the brochures for one of its tests--GRE, TOEFL, SAT etc... Contact Pearson/VUE for the proper code for the GMAT)
