How to Apply
Applications for the MPD program are all submitted online using a system called Apply Yourself. Once you arrive at the entrance to the site click on the "Create and Account" box and request a PIN. Once you have your PIN, you can use it to return to the system over several sessions. When you have completed your application you can pay your application fee via credit card online or you can mail a check or money order to the MPD admissions office. Application system requirements and other details can be found on the main page of the Apply Yourself site.
All test scores, transcripts, letters of recommendation, portfolios, and completed applications must arrive in our office by January 15th for your application to be considered. All applications are reviewed by the committee after January 15th for admission in the fall semester of that year, which begins in August. Notification letters will be mailed to applicants by March 15th.
