*International applicants have additional requirements; see Graduate Admissions section of this catalog.
Consideration is given to the applicant’s academic record, test scores, letters of recommendation, resume, and typed personal statement and objectives. However, when there is a conflict in the predictions of success from the GPA and test score, exceptions may be made if the applicant’s educational background, excellence in performance in business and professional activities, creativity and leadership, or experience in the field of alternative dispute resolution indicates success in the program. In reviewing the academic work of applicants, the junior/senior adjusted grade point average for all applicants will be considered. In cases where the applicant has done additional accredited undergraduate work beyond the bachelor’s degree or has done accredited graduate work, the most recent two-year adjusted GPA will be used in the admissions consideration.
An applicant will not be admitted until a completed application, application fee, letter of intent, current resume, two letters of recommendation, valid Immunization Certificate, official test score, and official transcripts for all undergraduate and graduate courses have been received and evaluated.
Admission Criteria for Unique Cases:
MSCM courses are closed for admission to any student not currently enrolled in the MSCM program; however, any student admitted to graduate study at KSU may request “permission of the instructor” to enroll. This is up to the discretion of the faculty of record in the course and the MSCM program director.
