    • If you are applying for a non-degree status you may submit your application up and through the drop/add registration period of the semester you would like to begin.

How To Apply

Please read all admission requirements carefully. All applicants must complete and submit the application along with a $45 application fee. If applying through our online application, this application fee is paid online via a secure server at the time your application is submitted. The application fee is nonrefundable.

Once you have submitted your application you need to request official transcripts to be sent to Towson University from all schools you have attended. If you are required to submit test scores (i.e. TOEFL, MAT, or GREs) please make sure you have requested official scores to be sent to the graduate school. In addition, all supplemental materials should be sent directly to the Graduate School.

    ** ** When you pay by check on-line, it is similar to using a debit card. In order to remind you that you spent this money, remember to mark your register.
