Admission Requirements


Regular admission requires that the student has submitted the following documents:

  • Graduate Application
  • Career and Professional Goals Statement (300 - 500 word essay outlining academic and career goals)
  • Resume
  • Official transcripts from ALL institutions where undergraduate or graduate courses have been taken.
  • *Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Miller's Analogy Test (MAT) scores. An undergraduate GPA of 3.5 may be substituted for the graduate school entry examination. 
  • The student has provided the Graduate Center with two letters of recommendation from individuals familiar with the student's work or academic record. Recommendations from family members are NOT acceptable. 

No single criterion will be decisive. Each item will be considered in relation to the applicant's total qualifications. Although Charleston Southern University has preferred levels for such criteria, each application is evaluated on an individual basis.

*The testing requirement may be waived if previous graduate level courses have been successfully completed. Decisions to waive this requirement will be made on a case-by-case basis by the Director of the Criminal Justice Graduate Program.
