Admissions Requirements

At Duquesne, each academic school handles its own graduate admissions process. Specific admissions criteria will vary according to the program in which you are interested. Be sure to check the program's website for the appropriate requirements.

For most programs, you will be required to submit an online application through Duquesne (this is true for select programs that use a centralized application system). All prospective graduate students will be required to submit official transcripts from all colleges attended. Most programs require letters of recommendation and a personal statement. GMAT and LSAT scores are required for the schools of Business and Law, respectively. GRE scores are required for most doctoral programs and some master's programs. Other requirements could include a writing sample, resume, audition or interview.

International students submit an online graduate application, official English proficiency test scores (TOEFL, IELTS or Duolingo) and several other specific requirements. Visit the Center for Global Engagement to learn more.
