We encourage applications for the fall semester from graduates of regionally-accredited institutions in any area of study. We provide a checklist of requirements, which includes transcripts, letters of recommendation, and a personal essay focusing on your moral and ethical point of view.
Application and Scholarship Deadlines
Interested in Fall 2019 enrollment? Contact the Office of Admissions.
Please note: Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis (the application is reviewed ONLY once complete). Applications received after July 1 will be reviewed on a space-available basis. Due to visa processing restrictions, applications for non-US citizens will only be reviewed on special circumstances after June 15. (Note: Since the admission review process does not include an interview, submitted materials should be representative of the student's qualifications.)
The School of Public Policy's student body includes individuals from over 20 countries, so we assure our guidelines and requirements for international applicants are well-defined and up-to-date.
Scholarships are awarded to 90% of our students. Our Office of Financial Aid works with candidates to explore assistance options, loan programs, and Federal Work-Study.
From partnerships to alumni blogs to cutting-edge research, Pepperdine's School of Public Policy creates a dialogue that extends beyond our community.
