Admission Information

APPLICATION PROCESS

DOMESTIC STUDENTS

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS


Applications are submitted electronically at apply.utoledo.edu. All application materials should be submitted to the College of Graduate Studies (COGS). Admission to the graduate program is contingent on the availability of openings for incoming students. 

To receive full consideration for financial assistance, application materials should be received by the application deadline. Applications are reviewed as they are received until available openings are filled. The assignment of an award is made by the admitting department, and does not necessarily happen at the same time as an admission decision is made.

Admissions decisions are made on an individual basis, taking into consideration the applicant’s baccalaureate and previous graduate record (grades and curricular content) and the student’s potential for graduate study as indicated by professional references and relevant post-baccalaureate experience, and for international students, scores on required standardized tests.

To check the status of your application simply log on to http://application.utoledo.edu and enter the username and PIN you used when applying. Click on your application to check the status.
