Information for Prospective Student
The Conditional Admission Period is intended to ensure that you are familiar with classroom expectations, time and technology requirements, and other factors that may impact your experience as a student. It also allows you time to determine, risk-free, whether the University of Arizona Global Campus is the right University for you. If you are seeking admission to any master’s degree program, you must meet the following admission requirements prior to the start of your first course at UAGC:
- Have a bachelor’s degree or graduate-level degree from an approved accredited college or university with a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or above. Applicants with a grade point average of 2.0 to 2.74 will be placed on Academic Watch. Applicants must provide an unofficial or official transcript or diploma demonstrating degree completion by Day 7, Week 3 of their first course or they will be denied admission.
- Have access to a computer with an internet connection for the Web-based programs and meet the minimum technology and minimum computer skills, abilities, features, system configurations, hardware, and software requirements outlined in the General Academic Information & Policies section of the Academic Catalog.
- Have the ability to study in English indicated by one of the following:
- Earned a bachelor’s degree in which the primary language of instruction was English; orr
- Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination taken within the past two years. For the TOEFL, a minimum score of 550 paper-based or 79 internet-based is required. For the IELTS, a minimum score of 6.5 is required. Copies of official scores must be submitted prior to provisional enrollment, and official scores must be submitted prior to full admission.
You are conditionally admitted to a master’s degree program when you submit a completed application indicating that you meet admission requirements outlined for that program and are approved by the Registrar’s Office. When you are in a conditional admission status, you are not eligible for Title IV funds and are not considered a regular student until granted provisional or full admission.
You must attend beyond Week 3 of your first course and have submitted official or unofficial college transcripts or diploma in order to be provisionally admitted to a master’s degree program at the University of Arizona Global Campus. Attendance past Week 3 constitutes your confirmation of your intention to continue in the program as a regular student. Upon attendance beyond Week 3 of your first course, you are considered a matriculated, regular student in your degree program. Please refer to the UAGC Promise for additional information.
The following requirements must be met prior to the conclusion of your third attempted University of Arizona Global Campus course in a degree-seeking program. To start the fourth course, you must complete all the requirements subsequently outlined and must meet all admissions requirements applicable to your specific degree program. If you do not complete all requirements, you will not be fully admitted and will be withdrawn from the program.
- Submission of an official transcript showing a bachelor’s degree or graduate-level degree from an approved accredited college or university with a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or above with a degree conferral date prior to the start of the first course at UAGC.
- Official TOEFL or IELTS scores, if required for admission. See the Academic Catalog for additional detailed requirements for full admission.
Transfer up to nine semester credits from an approved accredited college or university.* Call now for more information at 866-711-1700.
* The transferability of credits is subject to the University of Arizona Global Campus transfer credit policies and requires the submission of official transcripts. The official transcripts will be evaluated to determine the credits that will officially apply toward a UAGC degree program
Upon being granted provisional admission to a master’s degree program, the Records Management staff will begin requesting official transcripts from schools where any master’s-level credit was earned, using the signed transcript request form. This request includes:
- College or university transcripts from institutions where master’s credit was earned
- Military credits evaluated for equivalency to master’s-level college credits
Once these transcripts have been received, the Registrar’s Office staff will complete your transfer credit evaluation. At the conclusion of the third attempted UAGC course in a degree-seeking program, if any transcripts from institutions where master’s credit was earned have not yet been received, the Registrar’s Office staff will proceed with the transfer credit evaluation of any transcripts received to-date. Additional transcripts may be submitted for evaluation at a later date, should they become available. If it is determined prior to the conclusion of the third attempted UAGC course that certain transcripts where master’s credit was earned are unable to be provided, you may sign and submit an Authorization to Close File form, thereby waiving potential transfer credits from previously attended schools, in order to expedite the transfer credit evaluation process. These transcripts may be submitted for evaluation at a later date, should they become available. You are responsible for reviewing your transfer credit evaluation as well as your scheduled courses with your Academic Advisor and informing them of any courses that you feel are duplicative or equivalent in content to previously completed coursework. You may submit official transcripts to UAGC for review of transfer credits at any time.
