Graduate Application Process

General Graduate Application Requirements

Note: Please submit the online application before any other supplemental documents (transcripts, resumes, references, etc.) are submitted.

  • Completed online application
  • Baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university
  • Official transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate work (if applicable)*
  • Two recommendation forms
  • Current résumé
  • Professional/career goals statement
  • Results of the TOEFL (if native language is not English)

Contact graduate admissions or the graduate program chair regarding the process to request graduate transfer credit.

*When requesting transcripts from your previous schools, always follow the electronic PDF delivery method directly to St. John Fisher College. We are in-network participants in most electronic transcript delivery exchange portals and this allows us to receive transcripts automatically without the need to submit them through a third party (as in the use of an email) or through the mail itself. This will save you money and time.
