Graduate Admission Requirements
The MTSU code is 1466. There is no department code. This code will automatically have your score sent to MTSU. If you have previously taken the GRE, the score is valid for 5 years. You can request an official copy from GRE.
Applicants with a 2.75 undergraduate GPA and five or more years of professional work experience may submit a portfolio in lieu of the GRE. Details of the Portfolio can be obtained by clicking on: portfolio information, or by contacting the MPS office at (615) 898-5611.
Students will submit portfolio materials to the MTSU College of Graduate Studies, Sam H. Ingram Building 2269, Middle Tennessee Boulevard, Murfreesboro, TN 37132. The portfolio material must be submitted as a packet, not mailed separately. Materials included in the packet will not be returned to the student.
Applicants who do not meet the criteria for unconditional admission may apply for conditional admission. A student admitted on conditional status may enroll for only 6 hours of core courses (PRST 6100, 6200, or 6300) the first semester. The student must earn grades of B or better during that first semester in order to continue in the program.
Conditional admission is granted by petitioning the MPS Graduate Admissions Committee. For more information on conditional admission, contact Dr. David J. Gotcher, through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at either (615) 898-5611, or (615) 904-8042.
