When to apply

Priority admittance will be given to individuals who apply by the dates listed. Applications received after these dates will still be evaluated, but an admission decision for your semester of choice is not guaranteed. Submit your application as early as possible to be the most competitive and to receive the greatest selection of classes.

TermPriority Domestic Admittance Deadline
Spring November 30
Summer March 15
Fall June 1


Once your application has been submitted and all supporting documentation has been received, it typically takes approximately 15-30 business days for an admission decision to be made. U.S. citizens may apply non-degree seeking if there is not sufficient time for an admission decision or to acquire necessary documents. To obtain a paper application, email Graduate Admissions.

Submit Your Transcript, Scores, and Documentation


Official transcripts are required and will be requested within the application portal. Please use the document provided to request your transcripts. Do not send your transcripts directly to UAH. The official transcript request cover letter will provide the correct address for you to use.


You will be asked for your test scores within the application portal. Do not send them directly to UAH. The minimum test scores are as follows:

  • GRE (Science, Engineering, Business)
    Minimum score: 300 verbal and quantitative and a 3.0 on the analytical writing
    Institutional code:1854
  • GMAT (Business)
    Minimum score: 500
  • MAT (Arts, Humanities, & Social Sciences)
    Minimum score: 410

May the GRE, GMAT or MAT be waived?

There are some exemptions from the GRE/GMAT/MAT requirement.

  1. If you graduated from an accredited college or university five or more years ago and have not been subsequently enrolled since that time, and you have a record of consistent professional achievement as documented on a submitted resume, the GRE/MAT requirements might be waived upon recommendation of the department or program chair. The final decision is made by the Dean of Graduate School. You must submit a written request for a waiver to be sent to the Office of Graduate Admissions.
  2. If you have an advanced degree from the United States, the GRE/MAT scores might be waived. You should also submit a written request for the waiver and send it to the Office of Graduate Admissions.


Department standards may be higher, so these minimum scores do not guarantee admission. Program committees will not consider your application until all documents are received. Please contact the department or visit the program website for any additional required documents.
