Application Process

If you decide that graduate school is necessary to further your career path, use our Graduate School Timeline to help you complete steps in the application process. Remember to start preparing for graduate school early in your undergraduate career. At a minimum, you should begin gathering materials for your application one year before you plan to attend graduate school.

When completing the application process, schedule an appointment with a career advisor to create a timeline, review your resume/C.V., and edit your personal statement.

Depending on the program, graduate schools require specific entrance exams. The following are the most common required exams:


You can prepare by buying test preparation books and/or flashcards, signing up for a classroom course, and/or completing one-on-one tutoring. Kaplan and Princeton Review are test preparation resources that can assist you in any of these ways. In addition, the company that publishes each test creates preparation materials. Regardless of which resource you use to prepare, it is advisable to take practice tests to simulate test day.
