Admission Requirements for Master’s Degree and Graduate Certificate Programs

Admission to all CityU master’s degree and certificate programs requires that applicants hold a four-year or approved three-year bachelor’s degree or equivalent from an accredited or otherwise recognized institution. Applicants must submit an official transcript providing proof that they hold a bachelor’s degree before they will be allowed to register for courses in any master’s program. In addition, U.S. Federal Financial Aid processing is not possible without proof of a posted bachelor’s degree.

No specific undergraduate major or emphasis is required for entrance into most graduate programs. Standardized entrance exams, such as the GRE, MAT and GMAT, are also not required.

All applicants must also provide proof of English proficiency according to established University policy.
