CCSU Graduate Studies - Application Checklist
CCSU School of Graduate Studies

 Application Checklist

  1. Application Form

    Complete your graduate admissions application online. Please include complete permanent and mailing addresses and telephone number(s) when completing the application. Please check the application before it is submitted to ensure completeness and accuracy.  Errors, omissions, or missing transcripts will delay the processing of your file.

  2. Application Fee

    Submit the $50.00 application fee with your online application (This fee is non-refundable).

  3. Official Transcripts

    Applicants must request that all official undergraduate and graduate transcripts be submitted directly to the CCSU Graduate Recruitment and Admissions Office from every institution attended or where a course was taken except Central Connecticut State University. This includes transcripts for courses taken and transferred to another institution. Hand delivered transcripts, transcripts sent from the applicant, or faxed transcripts are not considered official and will not be accepted. Note: original study abroad transcripts may also be needed and requested. Applicants who hold a Master's degree from a regionally accredited university with a 3.00 or higher GPA on a four-point scale (where A = 4.00) are required to request that official transcripts be sent from the institution where the undergraduate degree was obtained and from where the Master’s degree was obtained. Official transcripts must also be sent from each institution where any other graduate level courses were taken. (Please note that applicants to the MAT program and to Post Baccalaureate programs are required to submit all undergraduate transcripts as well). The Graduate Recruitment and Admissions office will maintain the right to request other official transcripts to review courses that are essential to the applicant's program of study. (Failure to identify on the application form all institutions attended, or to have transcripts sent from each of them, may be considered sufficient reason for non-admission or for subsequent dismissal from the graduate program.)
