Applying to SPEA’s MSCJPS program is a three-part process
Minimum preferred requirements for admission include a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university with a grade point average of B (3.0) or higher and a combined score of 300 or more (verbal and quantitative) on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or a total score of 500 on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). Students meeting these requirements are not guaranteed admission. Other admission factors include references, work experience and the personal statement.
Official transcripts from all colleges and universities previously attended must be submitted with the completed application forms.
SPEA considers results from the GRE, GMAT or LSAT, but the GRE (http://www.ets.org/gre (hyperlink: http://www.ets.org/gre) is the most common among our applicants. Preparing to take the test and getting official test scores can be a lengthy process, so plan accordingly.
You can request a waiver of the GRE/GMAT/LSAT if you have already earned a Master's degree from an accredited college or university in the United States or if you have seven or more years of work experience in the field. In addition, certificate students who complete a SPEA graduate certificate with a 3.5 GPA or higher may request a waiver when applying to the MSCJPS program. To discuss options regarding the standardized test requirement, contact Luke Bickel, 317-278-0308 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to official GRE, GMAT or LSAT scores, SPEA requires information about your background:
