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.
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.
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.
The CRDM program requires GRE scores for admission (you may use the scores earned for entry to your master’s program if it is less than 5 years old). If you did not earn your master’s degree from a university in the United States, you must submit your TOEFL scores. There is an area in Apply Yourself to enter your scores but you will be required to provide official score documents if you are accepted into the program.
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.
