MA in Interdisciplinary Studies

 

To Apply

Step 1:
Complete and submit an application for Graduate Studies at least one month before classes begin. Follow this path from Admissions Applications:

  • <First time user account creation>
  • New students must create a log in ID and PIN for the application process.
  • Select <Graduate Studies - Degree Bound> from the drop-down menu.
  • Be sure to note on your application which semester or session you wish to begin.
  • Be sure to note the areas of concentration you wish to pursue. You must choose at least two areas, and no more than three.
  • Complete and submit the application.
If you wish to be admitted initially as a non-degree seeking "special" student, select <Non-Degree Seeking Graduate> from the drop-down menu mentioned above. You may complete up to 6 credit hours as a special student before applying for Graduate admission. Credits taken as a special student require advisor approval to be counted toward the MAIS degree. Students with special status do not qualify for financial aid.

 

Step 2:
Submit a letter of intent.

 

Step 3:
Submit sealed official copies of transcripts.

 
Step 4:
Applicants who have a GPA of 3.0 or better for the last 64 credit hours of undergraduate/graduate work will be admitted with Final Admission/Good Standing status. The GRE is not a requirement for admission to the WNMU Graduate Division.
 

Step 5:
Applicants who have a GPA of 2.75-2.99 for the last 64 credit hours of undergraduate/graduate work will be admitted with Final Admission/Probation status. To be removed from Academic Probation, a student must complete one semester of graduate work, designated by his or her graduate advisor(s), with a 3.0 GPA or better. If the student does not meet this requirement, s/he will remain on Academic Probation and may be disqualified.
