There is no "one size fits all" process for candidates applying to graduate school. The information below covers common application components for all graduate programs. However, the qualifications, circumstances, and dreams of each candidate is unique. In addition to reviewing these resources in advance of submitting applications, candidates are encouraged to discuss the graduate program application process and relevant school selection factors with their faculty and career advisor. Schedule an appointment on Handshake to get started (open to both current students and alumni), and check out CPD's graduate school resources for more information.
