Congratulations on your decision to apply to the School of Graduate Studies at Central Connecticut State University.
If you have not already done so, we encourage you to visit our graduate studies website at www.ccsu.edu/grad for detailed information on our graduate programs and admission requirements. Also, please be sure to review information on the additional materials that may be required by the department for particular graduate programs.
Please complete every question. If you are unsure how to answer, please refer to the detailed Admissions Information and Instructions located below. We will be happy to answer any additional questions. Kindly call the Graduate Recruitment and Admissions at (860) 832-2350 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contact all previous institutions you've attended and request that an official transcript be sent directly to the CCSU Graduate Recruitment and Admissions Office. This includes transcripts for courses taken and transferred to another institution. An official transcript: (a) comes directly from the issuing institution via postal mail or is received from the applicant in an envelope sealed by the issuing institution, or is an electronic transcript sent directly from the issuing institution through a trusted third party vendor that requires authentication and is sent to email@example.com; (b) bears the institutional seal; and (c) bears the official signature of the Registrar (or Recorder of Records). Note: original study abroad transcripts may also be needed and requested. Applicants who hold a Master's degree from a regionally accredited university with a 3.00 or higher GPA on a four-point scale (where A = 4.00) are required to request that official transcripts be sent from the institution where the undergraduate degree was obtained and from where the Master's degree was obtained. Official transcripts must also be sent from each institution where any other graduate level courses were taken. (Please note that applicants to the MAT program and to Post Baccalaureate programs are required to submit all undergraduate transcripts as well). The Graduate Recruitment and Admissions office will maintain the right to request other official transcripts to review courses that are essential to the applicant's program of study. (Failure to identify on the application form all institutions attended, or to have transcripts sent from each of them, may be considered sufficient reason for non-admission or for subsequent dismissal from the graduate program.)
