Earning your graduate degree is an important step toward achieving your education and career goals, and Grantham is delighted to help you reach this significant milestone. We are committed to delivering an exceptional student experience, beginning with a smooth and hassle-free enrollment process.
The following provides basic information you need to know for admittance into your program of choice:
You are required to have a baccalaureate degree with a cumulative GPA greater than or equal to 2.5 from an institution accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Official transcripts showing proof of the baccalaureate degree must be received by the Registrar’s Office within 90 days of enrollment.
If you do not meet the 2.5 GPA minimum, you may file a request for GPA waiver for admission to a graduate program. The Dean or Chair of the respective college or program within the University will consider admission on a case-by-case basis. If you choose not to request a GPA waiver or if your waiver request is not accepted, you may request admission as a non-degree student.
You may take two graduate courses, provided you meet the other admission requirements. The courses may be taken concurrently or separately as long as you maintain continuous enrollment and achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher after completing both courses. Upon successful completion of the two graduate courses with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, you may apply for admission to a graduate degree program. If you do not meet the cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher after completing two graduate courses, you may apply for a GPA waiver if one has not been requested; otherwise, you will be dismissed from the University and may not reapply for a period of six months.
Prior to your admission to Grantham University as a graduate student, we recommend (not required) that you satisfy all major-related undergraduate competencies. See the Graduate Degree Programs section in the University Catalog for the recommended courses containing content that addresses these competencies. Recommended competencies are provided to help ensure student success in graduate programs.
We require the following documentation prior to the evaluation process, as appropriate to your situation:
- A copy of all college/university transcripts
- Employer course certificates with description of course content and class hours
- Sailor/Marine American Council on Education Registry Transcript (SMART), Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) transcript, College Level Examination Program (CLEP) score, Coast Guard Institute (CGI) transcript, Army American Council on Education Registry Transcript System (AARTS) transcript, Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) transcript and/or other military transcripts
You may send copies of transcripts or documents for the evaluation. However, Grantham requires proof of graduation in the form of an official transcript that confirms an earned baccalaureate degree from an institution of higher learning accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
No standardized tests (e.g., GRE or GMAT) are required for admission to the MBA, MS or MHA degree programs.
To enroll in Grantham's Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program, please see the MSN admission requirements.
