- The first step is to set-up a meeting with the graduate program coordinator.
- Bring your transcripts (an unofficial student version is acceptable) to your interview.
- Your program of study will be developed and approved at your scheduled interview. Use the two-page program sheet you will receive at this meeting to monitor your progress in completing all requirements. The graduate program coordinator is the only faculty member who can determine program requirements, including waivers, transfers, etc.
- After your initial interview, you must apply for admission to Graduate Studies.
