Application information and materials can be obtained from EMU’s Office of Admissions or at email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be processed for Fall (February 15 deadline) and Winter (October 15 deadline) admission, but desired classes may not be available for students and delays in securing official transcripts may also delay admission decisions. As noted above, separate applications must be filed for the M.P.A. program and any certificate programs that a student may be interested in pursuing, even if done concurrently.
Promising applicants with a minimum of five years of administrative experience who do not meet the GPA requirements for regular degree admission, and who have a GPA between 2.75 and 3.0, may be granted conditional admission. Such applicants must arrange for an admission interview with the program director and submit two letters of recommendation from employers or others who can testify to the applicant’s suitability for the program. Applicants may be granted degree admission after completing at least four courses approved by the program director, with a minimum grade of 3.0 (B) in each course.
