Graduate Admissions

Admission to Graduate Studies

Applicants must meet admission requirements for the program to which they are applying. For specific requirements of a particular program, see the appropriate program sections of this catalog.

To apply for admission to Graduate Studies, a prospective student must complete an online Graduate Application for Admission and pay the non-refundable $35 application fee. Applications must be submitted with payment by Discover, MasterCard, or VISA.

Applications will be valid for a period of two years. Anyone wishing to reapply after the two-year period must submit a new graduate admission application, along with the non-refundable $35 application fee, and comply with new admission criteria, where appropriate. This will include any returning students who have previously completed a graduate degree or certificate program.

Applicants who wish to transfer to JSU and be accepted into a graduate degree or certificate program must be in good academic standing at their current institution and meet the admission requirements for the program to which they have applied.

If a student wishes to pursue more than one graduate degree or graduate certificate at a given time, the student must contact the Dean of Graduate Studies for approval prior to application.
