We accept applications on a rolling basis. Choose the deadline that works best for you.

Submit all materials through the University’s online application system. Please don't submit materials via mail. We can't review your application until you submit all the materials listed below.
Your decision will be emailed to you once your application has been reviewed, and all transcripts and credentials are authenticated by the Graduate School. Applicants are typically notified of admissions decisions four to six weeks after the application deadline for their selected term of entry. Incomplete applications cannot be reviewed.
No tests are required for you to apply to the program (except TOEFL scores for international students). We don't require the GRE.
Information for international students
- English language test scores: Submit an official score report from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Register for the test and submit scores. View the University of Minnesota’s TOEFL score guidelines and expectations.
- Coursework completed outside of the United States: A professional credential center must perform a “course-by-course” evaluation of your transcripts. A suggested provider of this service is Educational Credential Evaluators. However, you can use any provider that’s an accredited member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). You don’t need to submit your transcript evaluation when you apply.
