Application Process

The deadline for applications to our graduate program is January 15, 2019. The application process is competitive and applications are reviewed by the Graduate Admissions Committee. The committee selects students whose academic record, written communication skills, and overall potential show the most promise for success in our field. Currently, only applicants with GPAs of 3.25 and above are eligible to apply to the Graduate Program.

Applicants should apply through the University of Maine Graduate School online. This process requires applicants to submit official scores from the Graduate Records Examination (GRE), three letters of recommendation, a personal statement, and official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended. Students are notified of the Admissions Committee’s decision in March-April. All accepted students begin coursework the following fall. Starting in Fall 2018, students enrolling in the graduate program will be assessed a $600 program fee each semester of their graduate program.
