A cohort is a group of students who will begin and complete the program together over the three semesters of enrollment. This graduate program is structured so that you will take 12 semester hours, or four courses, each semester for three semesters. If you would like to enroll in a cohort with colleagues, please email and so indicate. The graduate registrar will try to accommodate your request at the time that schedules are made.

Admission decisions are made within five days of submitting all the required documents. An invitation to enroll is extended to the FIRST twenty-four admissible applicants on a rolling basis.
Once the admission decision is extended, the financial aid office is notified and all appropriate materials are sent to that office. If an applicant would like to be awarded Stafford Federal Loans (the only financial aid available to graduate students), the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be filed at
You are not required to file the FAFSA if you are planning to pay your tuition from personal monies.
