All graduate work (except for the Master’s Degree in Law, J.D. in Law and M.D. degree) at the University of Miami is under the direction of the Dean of the Graduate School and the Graduate Council.

All graduate students at the University of Miami are subject to the general standards and requirements of the University and its various programs in regard to attendance, examinations, payment of fees, and conduct, as well as to the specific requirements of the Graduate School. The graduate student is expected to assume the initiative in completing all requirements in the time specified.

Admission requirements are described in the Bulletin of the Graduate School, and may be obtained from the individual department or program. 

Applications are processed through the various Schools and Colleges. Visit the Graduate School website and click apply to review the application process.

Prospective students should note that “graduate study” means an integrated program of advanced, specialized study, based on an undergraduate major and/or adequate background, presupposing academic and personal maturity, and making much more than average demand upon the industry, initiative, and scholarship of the student. The term must be distinguished from “post-graduation study” which means merely that courses, not necessarily of graduate level, are taken after the student has received a bachelor’s degree.

To preserve its ideals of scholarship, conduct, and character, the Graduate School reserves the right and the student by his/her registration concedes the right to require the withdrawal of any student for any reason deemed sufficient by the Graduate School at any time.
