Requirements for Graduate Admission
To be considered for admission, a prospective graduate student must have:
- Earned an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution prior to the first semester of proposed graduate study
- At least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average in undergraduate coursework; students with grade point averages below 3.0 may be considered for provisional admission, provided that they demonstrate significant professional experience in a relevant field
Additional, program-specific requirements may apply, depending on the graduate degree and program pursued. Graduate applicants must submit transcripts from all undergraduate institutions attended before they will be admitted.
SoPA does not admit non-matriculating graduate students. Graduate credit can only be earned by a student admitted to a specific graduate program.
Prior SoPA students who have been inactive for one year (three consecutive semesters) will be required to re-apply for admission to SoPA. This includes submitting a new admissions application and application fee. SoPA students who were not enrolled in classes the previous semester must go to the online application to update their contact information and their government-issued ID.
