UAM 2005/2007 Catalog
Graduate Degrees Offered
Graduate school applicants are required to submit an official transcript verifying their baccalaureate degree. Students who do not submit an official transcript may be admitted provisionally. Provisional students may not enroll for a second semester without the required documents. Graduate students living in a UAM residence hall must also submit proof of immunization as required by state law. In addition, applicants may be required to submit scores on the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) general test. To pursue a graduate degree, applicants must also be admitted to the appropriate school. Specific master’s degree programs may require a certain GRE score before students may be admitted to that program. Students should refer to the specific master’s degree program for its requirements.
International applicants must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and must submit supporting documents required to receive an I-20. A minimum score of 550 (paper-based) or 213 (computer-based) on the TOEFL is required for admission.
Applicants who do not meet the minimum grade point average of 2.50 may petition to the Graduate Council for probationary admission. Probationary admission will allow a student to enroll in up to 12 hours of course work. To continue enrollment in graduate classes, students admitted on probationary admission must complete 12 hours with a grade point average of 3.00 or better.
A graduate student who has not been enrolled for a period of two calendar years will be classified as inactive. To resume graduate study, the student must reapply for admission to the University through the Office of Admissions.
