Incoming graduate students must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited university, with an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher. Students with lower GPAs may be admitted as probationary or provisional graduate students. Probationary students are automatically admitted as regular degree-seeking graduate students if they earn a 3.0 GPA after having completed the equivalent of one semester of full-time graduate study (nine hours in the fall/spring or six hours in the summer). Individuals with varied backgrounds who seek to enter or advance in the behavioral science field are encouraged to apply.
KU accepts applications to the M.A. in Applied Behavioral Science with initial reviews beginning December 15 and all applications must be submitted and complete by July 1. To find out if any positions are still available, please contact Liz Barton, academic success coach.
