APPLICATION MATERIALS

 

Necessary Application Materials To Be Sent to WNMU Office of Admissions

All application materials related to admission to the Graduate Division of WNMU should be submitted to the Graduate Admissions at WNMU. The student must first be accepted and admitted to the WNMU graduate school before acceptance to the MOT program can be finalized.


A student seeking to obtain a graduate degree at WNMU must meet the criteria for entrance into the WNMU graduate school and complete all application materials required by the WNMU Admissions Office.


WNMU Graduate School Division


  1. Graduate Division Final Admission: Student meets all of the Graduate Division Admission requirements.
    Students who have a GPA of 3.0 or higher for the last 64 credit hours of their undergraduate course work are not required to take the GRE (Graduate Record Examination) for FINAL admission status into WNMU Graduate School.

    Also, applicants who already have completed an advanced degree will be admitted on FINAL status and will not be required to take the GRE. Students must provide the Admissions Office with an official transcript showing the award of a Master’s Degree from an accredited institution recognized by CHEA (Council of Higher Education Accreditation).


  2. Graduate Division FINAL Admission/Academic Probation: student does not meet the Graduate Division FINAL admission standards.

    This classification is for a beginning graduate student who lacks a GPA of at least 3.0 for the last 64 credit hours of undergraduate/graduate work but whose GPA is at least 2.75. To remedy a grade point deficiency, the student who has completed the bachelor’s degree requirement must complete 9 hours of graduate work designated by his or her graduate advisor/s with a grade of B or better in each course. The student’s advisor/s will then determine the student’s course of study. Failure to meet these requirements will preclude further progress toward a graduate degree. Once the student has completed the first semester of graduate work designated by the advisor/s, with a grade of B or better in each course, the student’s admission status will be changed to Graduate Division FINAL admission. Note: Graduate Division Final Admission does not guarantee a student admission into a specific program (such as admission to the MOT program) as that application is a separate process.


  3. Graduate Division CONDITIONAL Admission: This applies to a student whose file is not complete. If you are applying while you are still working toward your Bachelor’s Degree, your admission will be conditional until you have earned a baccalaureate degree.

    An MOT student may take a maximum of one semester of course work while on Graduate Division CONDITIONAL Admission status. The student may not register for additional course work until the file is complete and the student has met all requirements for Graduate Division FINAL Admission. (See Graduate Division FINAL Admission above.)
