2 What You Will Need to Apply Online
- A current resume
- A goal statement
- A scanned digital copy of all transcripts from all prior academic institutions:
- Prospective University of Cincinnati students should upload a copy of their degree audit in the application. If admitted, they will not need to mail an official UC transcript.
- Applicants who have received a degree in China must have their degrees verified by the China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Center (CDGDC) if admitted.*
- Applicants with a three-year bachelor's degree should visit WES's free Degree Equivalency tool to determine whether their degree is equivalent to a four-year bachelor's degree in the U.S. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
- If admitted, you must then submit official copies of transcripts no later than one week before the start of the semester.
- Contact information for two letters of recommendation. You will need letters from two people who are familiar with your ability and accomplishments. We strongly prefer that at least one reference come from an employer. Please contact your references before starting your online application as once your references are included in the online application system, you will not be able to change them.
