Provisional Admission

Your admission letter may have indicated that your status is provisional. If this is the case, your official admission will not be completed until we receive items such as an official final transcript showing award of the bachelor's degree or official GRE or GMAT scores, or both.

While a student who is admitted provisionally will be allowed to enroll for his/her first quarter, all admission provisions must be cleared by the end of the first quarter of enrollment. In order to avoid any difficulties, we strongly encourage students to meet the terms of their provisional admissions prior to the start of Fall quarter. If students fail to clear their provisional status by the end of the first enrolled quarter, an administrative hold will be placed on their academic record, preventing their registration for future quarters, and their graduate student status may be revoked.

Taking actions necessary to clear provisional admission status is the sole responsibility of the student. This may include contacting the Educational Testing Service to have GRE scores sent to the Graduate Division or contacting the undergraduate institution they attended for an official copy of the transcript with degree conferral. All documents necessary to clear a student's provisional admission status should be sent directly to the following address:
