At the University of Kansas students are admitted to Graduate Studies through the Graduate Division of one of the schools or colleges. Admission requirements vary from department to department and from school to school. Students will not receive graduate credit without having been accepted by a specific department or program. If you have questions regarding your application, please contact the Department of Curriculum & Teaching.

Please note: Meeting minimum admission standards does not guarantee admission to the program. The graduate admissions committee conducts three application reviews each year. Only complete applications are reviewed after each application deadline.

Regular admission requires a bachelor’s degree and a grade-point average (GPA) of at least a B (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) from a regionally accredited institution, like KU, or a foreign university with substantially equivalent bachelor’s degree requirements.  

If you are an international applicant, we strongly encouraged you to complete the application process well in advance of these deadlines, in order to ensure adequate time for processing of visa-related paperwork.
