Admission to the BGSU MPA Program is competitive.  The deadline for applications for students who wish to be considered for departmental funding is March 1.  Applications for the fall semester will be considered on a rolling basis until July 1.  Students who wish to apply for the Spring semester must apply by November 1.

We require the following application materials: transcripts, GRE or GMAT scores, two letters of reference and a 250-500 word essay explaining why you are interested in the MPA. If you have an undergrad GPA over 3.2 from a university in the United States, or a previous graduate degree, you do NOT have to submit GRE or GMAT scores.
