Graduate Admission Process and Requirements

Graduate Admission Process

There is no application deadline. Graduate program applicants are encouraged to apply at least two months prior to the start of any semester. This application process allows ample time to be accepted, develop an academic schedule, and to process financial aid applications (if applicable). The University uses a portal system for the secure transmission of documents.

Graduate Admission Requirements

Each applicant’s candidacy will be evaluated once all admissions materials have been received. 

The graduate admission process requires the candidate to:

  • complete the application online at www.HarrisburgU.edu/Apply;
  • submit final official undergraduate transcript(s) from the college or university at which a baccalaureate degree was conferred, and any other institution of higher education attended (whether or not academic credit was earned);
  • submit a personal goal statement including:
    • future goals: identify career/professional goals; and,
    • leadership or group contributions: describe examples of leadership experience in which you have significantly influenced others, helped resolve disputes, or contributed to group efforts over time;
  • submit a resume;
  • see programs for additional admission requirements, if any.
