While each of ASU's graduate programs has unique admission standards, ASU has set minimum standards for admission to master's, certificate and doctoral programs.
University graduate admission standards
Bachelor's Degree Requirement
You must have earned a bachelor’s degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution in the U.S. or the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor’s degree from an international institution that is officially recognized by that country.GPA requirement
You must have maintained a “B” (3.00 on a 4.00 scale) grade point average (GPA) in the last 60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours of undergraduate course work. If you do not meet the minimum GPA requirements, your application may still be considered.
The application standards for international students are the same as for domestic students, with the exception of submitting proof of English proficiency (for students whose native language is not English). After admission, international students are also required to obtain a U.S. visa, which includes submitting a graduate financial guarantee.
Additional factors by program
Factors that may also be considered include test scores (like the GRE or GMAT), the type of course work completed during undergraduate studies, letters of recommendation, and any other supporting documents you may be asked to submit for your application.
