Students who have been accepted as candidates for a graduate degree and have enrolled in their designated program.
Students who usually fall into one of the following categories:
Those registered for 9 or more credits in a given Fall or Spring semester.
Those registered for fewer than 9 credits in a given Fall or Spring semester.
Those who are enrolled in specific courses taken on an audit (noncredit) basis. Students may be admitted to auditor status by proving to the department chair that they can profit from class discussion and by filing an audit declaration. Applicants seeking to audit a course through the Stillman School of Business may only do so if there are seats available in the classroom. Audit applicants are the last to register for any class.
Among the minimum criteria that are generally applied in determining eligibility for admission to graduate studies are evidence of a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university; a satisfactory undergraduate scholastic average in appropriate coursework from an accredited college or university; satisfactory scores on any entrance examinations required by the department to which the candidate has applied; and interviews, appropriate references and any other assessment procedures when requested. All original and official transcripts pertaining to all previous study and/or academic credentials earned, including entrance examinations results, must be submitted to the University by the issuing agency or institution. Graduate students must meet the course and credit requirements of the department in which they intend to study.
No documents submitted as part of the application procedure will be returned, nor will any requests to duplicate documents be honored.
The completed application and all necessary documentation must be submitted and ready for review by the following dates:
Priority deadline to be considered for any available College-level scholarships. Applications are considered until August 1 and December 1 for the Fall and Spring semesters, respectively. Please refer to the College of Communication and the Arts section of the Graduate Catalogue for program specific details.
Applications received after the aforementioned dates will be considered based on space availability.
Applications for degree programs in the School of Health and Medical Sciences received after the above deadlines will be reviewed on a space-available basis. Admissions will remain open until the classes are filled.
Applicants for the Nursing Ph.D. and D.N.P. programs received on a space available basis.
Graduate credits earned recently at another accredited college or university, and not applied toward a prior degree, may be accepted in partial fulfillment of graduate degree credit requirements at Seton Hall. The courses taken should be similar to required or elective courses approved for the curriculum concerned. The grades earned must not be lower than a “B.” In general, a total of 6 credits may be approved for master’s degree programs and 30 credits for the doctoral program. Graduate students applying for transfer of credit should contact their adviser in the appropriate college/school, requesting advanced standing on the basis of official transcripts, and present the catalogue description(s) of the graduate course(s) for which transfer credit or advanced standing is requested. Stillman School of Business only accepts transfer credits from an AACSB accredited school.
Once enrolled, students may not register for graduate course work at another institution without prior written permission of the department chair or program director. Some departments will not authorize any transfer credits or may
impose restrictions. Students should consult their adviser prior to any registration at another institution.
