Can I apply even if I need prerequisite courses?
Yes. Prerequisite coursework may be completed after admission to the degree program. Coursework can be taken in the undergraduate program at Meredith or elsewhere.
When can I start?
Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis so students can begin their graduate study in any semester. Application deadlines are April 1 (for summer), July 1 (for fall) and November 1 (for spring). Due to the release dates of the revised GRE the application deadline for spring 2012 has been extended until December 1, 2011.
My undergraduate degree is in a completely different field, am I still eligible to apply?
Yes, in fact most of our students are people who decided after earning their undergraduate degree and in some cases many years of work that they want to change fields. Having your transcript reviewed and meeting with an admissions counselor will help you determine what the program can look like for you.
Can I take classes without fully applying?
Yes, you can enroll as a non-degree (PBS) student for any undergraduate courses and up to two graduate courses as a non-degree student.
