Application Review Process
The application review process begins shortly after the application deadline. All applications must be submitted through our online application system by the application deadline. Supplemental materials such as official test scores and letters of recommendations can be received after the application deadline.
EST&P only grants MS degrees, so we do not have a formal Integrated Master's/Bachelor's (IMB) Degree option. However, we offer an expedited admission process for CMU undergraduates. This includes waiving the application fee and the GRE examination requirement. We ask that you submit an abbreviated application online, completing only one of the two essay questions and uploading a current transcript. We also request two letters of recommendation, but we have a simplified process for CMU faculty recommendations. Interested CMU undergraduates are encouraged to make an appointment to meet with an EST&P advisor, discuss your goals and interests, and learn the full details of the expedited application process.
