Admissions

Overview

Each of our graduate programs has its own specialized criteria and individual due dates. Applicants are best served to review each programs’ “How to Apply” webpage.  Early and direct communication with graduate program staff is essential to ensuring a smooth application process.

Our most competitive applicants score above 300 (combined quantitative and verbal) and at least a 4.0 in the analytical writing section of the current version of the GRE and have earned a GPA of 3.0 or better in their previous studies. All applicants are assessed based on their entire application packet.

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is required to be considered for admission.  Please refer to the Graduate School website on international applicants for additional information. International applicants may also be required to submit a credential evaluation by an outside agency (i.e. WES or ECE) for transcripts from foreign institutions.

To begin the application process, please fill out the request more information form and you will receive an email from the appropriate graduate program staff member.

Once you are ready to officially apply you can do so online through the Graduate School website.

Please do not hesitate to contact our graduate program staff or faculty program directors with any questions.  They are always eager to hear from prospective students and discuss our programs!


International Students

The daily experiences of our academic community are enriched by the diversity of experiences, backgrounds and origins of our faculty, students, staff and post-docs.

Our school, much like the greater Baltimore area, is fortunate to be comprised of people of all nationalities. Our diversity continues to be a strength and point of pride on our campus.

The Office of International Services on University of Maryland, Baltimore campus functions as the primary source for information serving the international student and scholar population, providing advice and support on matters of an academic, personal, and cultural nature.
