Criminal Justice Management
To be considered for acceptance into the program, applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA of 2.85. However, applicants with GPAs below 2.85 will be considered based on additional factors: coursework completed beyond the baccalaureate, reputation of undergraduate institution, undergraduate major, and current position’s level of responsibility.
In addition, scores on standardized tests such as GMAT, GRE, ETS test of Business Knowledge and other nationally recognized instruments will be considered. Students who have an undergraduate GPA below 2.85 are strongly encouraged to submit a GMAT or GRE score.
Other factors considered for admission include two letters of recommendation, and a statement of purpose describing why you want to enter the program and how you believe your previous training and experience will help you succeed. The statement should not exceed 500 words and must be submitted in printed form. Both may be emailed to Graduate Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 401-598-1286.
