Categories of Admission
Students will be admitted to a graduate program with one of the following statuses:
- Regular Admission: Regular admission is granted to applicants who have met all the admission requirements such as grade point average (GPA) and when the Graduate Admission Office has received all necessary documents.
- Provisional Admission: A student who has met basic requirements such as GPA, but is still awaiting one or more other documents required by the Graduate Admission Office may be granted provisional admission. A student who is accepted provisional must submit complete and satisfactory records within 60 days after the first day of registration to be able to continue in the program.
- Probationary Admission: In certain exceptional cases a student who does not meet the minimum GPA requirement, but presents other evidence of ability to succeed in a graduate program may be given probationary admission. The probationary status may be removed after the student has demonstrated academic ability by maintaining a "B" average for the first nine hours of graduate courses.
- Non-Degree-Seeking Students: Those with a bachelor's degree who wish to enroll in some graduate courses for their professional advancement, but do not plan to complete a degree program, may apply for non-degree status. Applicants who are seeking non-degree status are not required to submit GRE or GMAT test scores. However, when they intend to apply these courses to a degree program they must submit a new application and submit the required test scores if applicable. No more than twelve graduate credits earned in a non-degree status at Park University may be applied to a degree program.
- Registered auditors: Students interested in a particular course, but not taking it for a grade.
- Park University Undergraduate Seniors may be admitted with special permission (see specific degree program for more information).
