How to Apply

Next is now, here's how

Complete the graduate application

You'll be asked to list basic information about yourself, your previous school(s), as well as your GPA, standardized test scores, extracurriculars, and any awards you've earned. Include additional documentation such as your GRE score (GMAT scores are accepted for the MBA program only). Request that your recommendations, test scores, transcripts, and any other official documents be mailed directly to the DSU Graduate Office

There's a $35 application fee, and you'll need to send your bachelor's transcripts and any required test scores directly to us.

If you are unemployed or furloughed from work due to COVID-19, please contact Dean of Graduate Studies with your circumstances, and the $35 application fee could be waived. Offer good for summer and fall 2020 entry to Masters Degree programs only.

*Please note, you can apply for all MS graduate programs for the summer and fall of 2020. But we accept applications for Ph.D. programs for fall entry only.


There's always an exception to the rule. The following types of graduate program applicants have a few extra steps to follow:

International students

If you are an international student, begin by filling out an application to the program you wish to enter. Once completed, you must also submit a Certificate of Financial Responsibility in order to receive an I-20 form, which is required to apply for an F-1 Student Visa.

Non-degree-seeking students

If you're a non-degree-seeking student, there is no cost to apply.

4+1 program students

If you're an undergraduate student with plans to complete a BS and MS, you can earn both in five years. For more information, please see our 4+1 page or the DSU online catalog.
