All applicants are evaluated on their undergraduate coursework and grade point average, Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores, career interests, recommendations, and breadth of background and experience. In the case of students coming directly from an undergraduate institution, greater weight is normally given to traditional academic criteria - undergraduate records and GRE scores-than those students with professional experience.
The School of Public Policy encourages applications from graduates of regionally accredited institutions in all areas of study.
Students are currently accepted for the fall semester only. The Admission Committee reviews applications on a rolling basis and applicants are notified of the committee’s decision as soon as possible thereafter. For further information please contact the Office of Admission by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 310.506.7493.
The priority application and scholarship deadline for the Fall term is February 1. All other applications should be received by May 1. Applications received after that date will be reviewed on a space-available basis.
