Springfield College accepts men and women for graduate study who posses personal and professional potential for effective educational and social leadership. In harmony with the Humanics philosophy of education at Springfield College, consideration is given to the whole person, including such aspects as maturity, motivation, and purpose. At the same time, attention is given to conditions that may seriously interfere with the student’s performance in their academic work; therefore, the following guidelines have been developed.
No student is admitted to full graduate standing with less than a 2.500 undergraduate index. Applicants with less than a 2.500 index, but not less than 2.000, will be considered for probationary admission if there is convincing evidence in examining their undergraduate academic record (and/or supporting documents, including appropriate tests, interviews, additional academic work, or experience) that, if given an opportunity, they will meet the academic standards at Springfield College. In all probationary cases of admission, there should be careful examination and full documentation of the basis for admission.
Admission to graduate study requires the submission of a completed application by the student. It is the student’s responsibility to have the registrars of all institutions they have previously attended forward official transcripts directly to the Office of Graduate Admissions.
Admission to the graduate program requires the possession of a bachelor’s degree. Selected majors require the General Test of the Graduate Records Examination. The student must also return a completed medical examination form following acceptance.
