PhD Program Admissions
The GSN has rolling admissions: applications are considered as soon as they are complete. Once an application is reviewed, an interview will be scheduled with qualified applicants.
The completed application and interview evaluation is then reviewed by the Academic Standards and Admissions Committee. Applicants are reviewed individually on the basis of previous academic achievement, Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores, professional experience and personal attributes. Each application is reviewed to determine whether prerequisites have been met for acceptance into the Doctoral program. Admission criteria vary slightly for the different programs as described in the following sections.
