Completed applications for our other three Master programs (MBA, Rehabilitation Counseling, and Special Education) are reviewed by the Graduate Program Admission Committees on a "rolling" basis. No standardized test is required for any program. 
The rolling admissions policy allows you to apply for admission at any time of year. Applicants are evaluated on their own academic merits and ability to complete our programs successfully. Once all the necessary documentation is received, your application materials are reviewed and a decision is made. You will be notified of the decision in writing.

All programs require:
