Apply Yourself

ApplyYourself provides step-by-step instructions, including a detailed FAQs section on completing and submitting your application materials. Contact links (including a “help” option) are listed at the bottom of each page should you have questions or issues about the process. Someone from the Graduate School will promptly contact you. The CRDM staff cannot assist you with technical application issues.

Graduate School

The Graduate School has a useful page of information for prospective students, with links to current information about tuition and fees, policies affecting graduate students, the Graduate Student Support Plan (GSSP) for students who apply for teaching or research assistantships, and an “Arrival Survival” guide for new students. You may also check the status of your application in the Apply Yourself system.

Reference letters

Your references will need to use the Apply Yourself system to upload their recommendation letters and submit evaluation forms. They may be very busy at the time of your request and unable to pull together their letters and complete the evaluation form by the deadline. They must also learn to navigate their section of the ApplyYourself to upload their material.

GRE scores

The CRDM program does not require GRE scores for admission. There is an area within the application to enter your scores, but you are not required to provide your scores or official score documents. If you did not earn your master's degree from a university in the United States, you must submit your TOEFL scores.

The CRDM Program admits approximately one part-time student each year. The applicant should follow the same admission procedure as full-time students. Part-time students are not eligible to apply for assistantships.
