The Graduate School Application Process

How it works:

At the University of Louisiana at Monroe, all prospective degree-seeking candidates are evaluated for admission in two steps: admission through the Graduate School, then admission to the program of choice.

Both of these units need specific materials to make a decision on student eligibility. Please be sure to send the requested information before the published deadlines so that your application may be reviewed.

At a minimum, all prospective students will be required to submit the Graduate School application, application fee, official transcripts from every institution attended, and official test scores (either GRE or GMAT). Some programs may require supplemental materials and/or an additional application. Official transcripts are sent directly from the issuing institution or evaluation agency in a sealed envelope, or may be sent electronically. If a transcript indicates that classes are in progress, the transcript will be deemed incomplete. Once the classes have been completed, another official transcript will need to be provided. 

There is a non-refundable $20.00 application fee ($30.00 for international students) for each application submitted to the Graduate School. Applications will not be processed without submitting this fee.
