Entry Requirements

  • Completed online application for graduate study and application fee
  • An earned baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution of higher education, or international equivalent, verified from official transcripts. Note: Due to admissions deadlines, graduate students are sometimes admitted before conferral of a bachelor’s degree. Students who are awaiting conferral of the degree will be permitted to register for their first semester. However, continuance in any graduate program requires an official transcript which verifies conferral of a bachelor’s degree.
  • Official, original university transcripts and any earned degree certificates sent directly to Mason Office of Admissions in a sealed envelope from all universities attended.
  • All transcripts from colleges or universities outside the United States must be translated into English, if applicable, and submitted for evaluation to the Mason Office of Admissions. Mason will provide evaluation service free of charge for all international transcripts, however, some programs may request an outside evaluation be completed. Because of volume, more time may be needed to process applications requiring a Mason evaluation. For expedited service, students can submit their documents to a recognized U.S. evaluation service at their own expense. For information on international transcript requirements, go here. 
  • Verification of English language proficiency. Please see English language requirements below.
  • Official GRE, GMAT, LSAT, or MAT or other official test scores, as required by your program sent directly to Mason from the testing agency
