Graduate Degree Process

In order to apply for a graduate degree from Utah State University, students must complete a School of Graduate Studies Application, take an admissions test, provide a copy of the student's transcript and provide three contacts for letters of recommendation. Even if you have attended Utah State University before, you must complete this process. Please speak with an advisor about choosing an admissions test.

Application Deadlines

While many departments have specific application deadlines, other departments admit students throughout the year. The time it takes to process an application is primarily dependent on the speed with which the School of Graduate Studies receives letters of recommendation, transcripts, and test scores. In some cases, this process may take 6-8 weeks. Applicants should plan accordingly.
