Applicants must have a minimum overall Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.00 on a 4.00 grade scale equivalent to US Bachelor’s Degree. If your GPA meets the minimum admission requirements, the department of major will determine if your overall academic record and test scores meet department requirements.
Please note: If you do not meet the minimum 3.00 GPA, your application can be considered for admission if you:
- have an undergraduate G.P.A. of 3.0 or higher for your last 60 semester credits or 90 quarter credits
- have worked in the program specific profession for 5+ years
- have a letter of support from a faculty member in the department
- write a detailed statement/essay describing your professional experience and potential to succeed academically
Individual department requirements may be more rigorous than the general UI requirements. In those situations, final admission is based on the department's decision.
