Application Guidelines

To assist the Office of Admissions in the review of applications, candidates are encouraged to submit a “complete” application package. Meaning, they should submit application, fees, transcripts and all other documentation listed below at one time. The submission of a complete application package will ensure that all credentials and supporting documents are matched efficiently, thus leading to a quicker turnaround for the admissions and the review processes. Below are the general application guidelines as well as the guidelines for specific populations of students.

Please note, if you are not able to submit a “complete” application package, you should:

  1. Send in your credentials as quickly as possible to avoid delaying the review of your application.
  2. Include your name, your social security number and your date of birth on the top of each page of a separate credential that you are submitting to the Office of Admissions.

All applicants must submit the following credentials:

  • Application form (paper or online) with a non-refundable application fee of $40.00 USD; students may request a fee waiver from the College Board or National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) or by downloading the Fee Waiver Request Form under Forms and Documents.
  • Official transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate institutions attended. (International graduate applicants presenting official secondary school and post-secondary school credentials, where English is not the primary language of instruction, are REQUIRED to submit a translated copy and course-by-course evaluation. Visit the For International Students section of this Web site for more information.)
  • Official copy of TOEFL, IELTs or iBT if English is not your native language. (International graduate applicants, visit the For International Students section of this Web site for greater detail on requirements for those students who are enrolling at the Brooklyn Campus from outside the U.S.)
  • Letters of recommendation (Please see the individual program Web pages for letter of recommendation requirements. Any specified letters of recommendation should be submitted directly to the academic department, rather than to the Office of Admissions.)
  • Some programs of study have additional requirements for their students. Please visit the Graduate Program Application Guidelines document to see if your program requires additional application documents.
