To apply to the MPA, Executive MPA, MIA, or MSEd in Higher Education Administration, use our general application. Executive MPA is a fall-only application.

Important Updates:

We are currently working remotely to support your applications. All materials to be submitted online at the time of application or electronically afterwards through an email attachment.  Please do not mail documents. If you mailed any documentation after March 18, please resend it electronically. We will follow up if additional documentation is needed.

To accommodate for the shortage of available testing sites we are temporarily allowing students to apply without a GRE score for Fall 2020. If you are able to take the remote test offered by ETS, we encourage you to do so as it may be a positive addition to your overall application. If you are unable to do so we will waive this requirement, but may reach out to you for more information after your application is reviewed by the admissions committee.

For international students requiring a language proficiency exam, we will also accept the Duolingo test in place of TOEFL or IELTS.


Fall 2020 applications are due by May 1, 2020.

Prospective students are encouraged to attend one of our helpful information sessions or open houses. Or, you may schedule a one-on-one appointment with one of our admissions professionals by contacting us at or by phone:
