An undergraduate grade-point average of at least 3.00 is required for admission to full standing in a graduate degree program.  However, applicants with undergraduate grade-point averages of 2.50 to 2.99 may be admitted on a provisional basis.  Standardized test scores also are required (e.g., GRE, Millers Analogies).  Beyond these minimal requirements, applicants must also meet the specific requirements for all majors offered in the department.  The meeting of standards does not guarantee admission.
