Faculty in each graduate degree program establish admission standards for the graduate programs, which often exceed the minimum standards set by Colorado Mesa University's Graduate Studies Advisory Committee. Applicants should consult the the graduate program's website, and speak to the program director for questions concerning additional admissions requirements. Contact information for the department head and program director for graduate programs is available here.


Please note, the graduate nursing programs only have a FALL start. 

Please contact us if you have a question about the start term of the program of your interest. Not all programs are offered every term.

Before beginning the application process, please visit your department website to review any additional requirements for the program you are interested in. Specific application instructions/forms are available from individual graduate programs.

Graduate applicants must submit the Graduate Student Application. There is a $50 application fee required to submit the application. Official transcripts of all college and university work must be submitted to [email protected], additional supplemental items should be submitted electronically in the application portal.
