Leveling Program Frequently Asked Questions

An open house is offered each semester if you wish to visit and tour our department.

We accept applications for the fall semester ONLY. However, in exceptional circumstances, students who have taken the fall courses elsewhere may enroll in the spring.

The deadline to apply for the leveling program is April 1.

All application materials are submitted to the Admissions Office, which will forward the folders to the CSD Department when they are complete.

Acceptance into our graduate program is highly competitive.

In addition, you will be more familiar with the program, department, professors and the expectations of faculty.

We consider all applications carefully. Applicants should have a 3.0 GPA from their undergraduate degree or their master’s degree if they have a higher-level degree.
