Admission requirements for Master of Science program:

Arrange for official transcripts to be submitted to the Admissions Office from your high school and, if applicable, from all universities, colleges, or professional schools you’ve attended. (GED or CHSPE may be substituted for high school diploma.) A bachelor’s degree or the equivalent from a recognized school is required for admission into our Master’s programs. If you are still enrolled in high school, then an incomplete transcript (not reflecting graduation) will be sufficient. However, a complete and official transcript (indicating a graduation date) is required upon availability.

An applicant for admission to a degree program must meet the minimum admission requirements for each program. Students with special circumstances and those who do not meet certain admission standard may be accepted on a conditional basis.

Admission to some programs may be granted to students who meet certain criteria. However, those who are admitted in this condition must complete the application process before the degree is granted. Admission standing is subject to cancellation or change if the admission credentials remain incomplete.

When is the application deadline?

  • Applications for the Spring Semester – December 10 (October 10 for Scholarship Applications)
  • Applications for the Fall Semester – July 10 (May 10 for Scholarship Applications)

You can start classes in the spring and the fall. We recommend that you begin the application process as early as possible. Before we can review your application packet, we must have all of the required documents. From our general experience, it can take several weeks for transcripts, letters of reference, and other key documents to be sent to Shepherd University.
If your application package is completed by the deadline, we will review your application and will respond promptly with our decision. If your package is missing a few items and the deadline is approaching, please contact our Admissions Office using the contact information above. In special circumstances, we will review your package and offer provisional admission. (You will then be required to complete the package before beginning your courses.)
