Section 2.6: Non-Traditional Applicants


In rare instances, persons who have not completed a baccalaureate will be considered for admission to the appropriate graduate unit due to unusual and exemplary experiential learning.

Such applicants may apply for admission by presenting for department/school consideration a curricular plan encompassing undergraduate and graduate coursework to achieve a liberal educational background and professional graduate degree and three letters of recommendation attesting to their potential for graduate study.  Upon department/school recommendation and the approval of the academic college dean, applicants will be admitted to undertake graduate work.

Upon successful completion of the curricular plan and the particular master’s degree requirements, the student will be awarded the master’s degree.
