Admission

Graduate Admission

Admission requires a bachelor’s degree and acceptance by Graduate Studies. Submit your graduate application online. If you are applying to a specific M.A. or Ph.D. program, submit your application, fees, letters of recommendation, Graduate Record Examination scores, official transcripts, and any other requested materials to that program.

Students already in a KU graduate program must be in good standing with their graduate degree program in order to participate in the certificate program, must have a minimum GPA of 3.0, and must provide a letter of support from their graduate degree program. After they submit their KUGRAD form they will be asked to submit a current ArtsForm to the Department.

Students not already in a KU graduate program will be asked (after they submit their KUGRAD form) to provide the WGSS Department with the following.

  • a letter stating the student's interest in the WGSS Graduate Certificate Program;
  • a copy of the student's latest college transcript (this does not need to be an official copy);
  • and two letters of recommendation from persons familiar with the student's academic work or potential for graduate study
