1. Complete your application online, which includes submitting a resume, professional statement, and two letters of recommendation as detailed below.
Include information about your degree(s), employment experience, and specialized skills, training, and/or certification(s).
In this essential component of the application, explain your reasons for seeking this graduate program. Include any information that will advance your candidacy, such as personal and professional attributes and goals, volunteer and professional experiences related to the program to which you are applying, and other related life experiences. Describe your future academic plans and anticipated contributions to the specific profession for which this program will prepare you. If you did not have an undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher and a B average in your major field, you must also address the following in your professional statement:
Explain why your grades were below Nazareth's minimum expectations.
Outline specific procedures you will follow to successfully navigate and meet the rigorous requirements of graduate study.
Describe relevant experiences and/or activities that demonstrate your ability to successfully complete graduate work at Nazareth College.
Letters of Recommendation
Submit these through the online application. If you would like to provide additional letters of recommendation, email the Office of Graduate Admissions, email@example.com.
Or you can use a credential file for this requirement if the letters were submitted for the purpose of graduate study, not for employment. If you have this type of file, have your college send it to Nazareth’s Graduate Admissions office.
These recommendations are used only for admission to a graduate program at Nazareth College. Graduate Admissions will dispose of all letters of recommendation following the admissions review process.
2. Request official transcripts from each college you attended.
If you attended Nazareth, the Office of Graduate Admissions will obtain your transcript upon receipt of your application packet.
If you didn't attend Nazareth, ask your previous college(s) to send your transcript directly to Nazareth's Office of Graduate Admissions. International applicants: Submit English-translated transcripts, including bachelor's or higher degree equivalency through a NACES-certified evaluation service such as World Education Service, Educational Credential Evaluations, or Josef Silny & Associates. (The evaluation is at the expense of the student.) Also see international admissions requirements.
