Student Classification

Master of Science, Master of Arts, Master of Business Administration, and Master of Special Education: Students classified in these categories are those applying for the purpose of pursuing course work which normally will result in the awarding of a Master's degree. See Graduate Admission Procedures for admission to graduate studies requirements and procedures.

Form 1 - Application for Admission to Graduate Studies

Graduate Special: Students who are pursuing course work without a planned objective, but with the goal of personal or professional enrichment and those pursuing a program of study resulting in a certificate of completion (i.e. licensure) are classified as "graduate special students." Special Student Admission does not require an application fee, Graduate Record Examination, General Test, or official transcripts.

Students applying for financial aid must provide an unofficial transcript to the School of Graduate Studies from the institution granting their bachelor's degree (excluding BSU graduates).
