It is the policy of Duquesne University to admit applicants who are best qualified to benefit from opportunities that the University offers for intellectual, spiritual and social growth. Graduate and professional school admission is based upon past academic performance, scholastic ability, standardize test scores, and personal characteristics. Information about religious preference, gender, racial characteristics and ethnic origin is not taken into consideration.
Each academic school handles its own graduate admissions process. As a result, specific admissions criteria will vary according to the program of study in which you are interested. Be sure to check the school's website for the appropriate requirements.
The Director of Graduate Admissions, part of the Enrollment Management Group, also serves as a resource for current and prospective students interested in graduate programs at Duquesne University.
For most programs, you will be required to submit an online application through Duquesne University (this is also true for select programs that use a centralized application system). All prospective graduate students will be required to submit official transcripts from all colleges attended, even if for only one course. Most programs require letters of recommendation and a personal statement. GMAT and LSAT scores are required for the schools of Business and Law, respectively. GRE scores are required for most doctoral programs and some master's programs. Other requirements could include a writing sample, resume, audition or interview. All international students are required to complete TOEFL in addition to all other admission criteria. Questions about applying can be directed to the individual program of interest or to email@example.com.
