Admission is highly selective and identifies those individuals who are judged to meet the academic challenges of the program. The selection committee evaluates each file on its individual merits as it relates to the goals and purpose of our program. Selection combines evaluations of an applicant's scholastic ability, professional activities, and career performance. This is accomplished by a review of academic transcripts, essays, test scores, and recommendation letters.
All PhD applicants should have six (6) hours of calculus. Students not having sufficient background in integral and differential calculus must meet this requirement in the first semester of enrollment.
Those seeking a PhD in Economics must have differential calculus before enrolling, and it is recommended that they complete courses in integral calculus and linear algebra as well.
