* The admission index results from a combination of the following:

  1. Grade point average (GPA) over at least the last 60 hours multiplied by 200.
  2. Verbal score plus quantitative score on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).

Students with an admission index below the 1,400 minimum but not lower than 1,300 may be admitted by the dean of the school, considering scores on the analytic portion of the GRE (or equivalent), grades in particularly relevant courses, or other relevant indicators of a student’s potential to succeed in a given graduate degree program. Such admission may be conditional or probationary with initial coursework specified.
