Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to mail my transcripts by the application deadline?

When applying to the Doctoral Program, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences requires that you upload a copy of your transcript from each college/university attended with your online application. An official transcript showing the conferral of the undergraduate degree is required to register in the Graduate School. An official transcript that differs from the application copy may bar an admitted candidate from registering.

Do people who concentrate in religion also practice a religion?

Some of our students are religious and some are not. Those who are religious practice different faiths—Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and others. There is no presumption that students in religion will believe in God or practice a certain faith.
