Admission to the Master of Nonprofit Management program is open to students with a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution and a grade point average (GPA) of 3.25 or higher in the last 60 hours of undergraduate course work.

Applicants must submit a current professional résumé and an essay about their personal background, career aspirations in the nonprofit sector, and the reason(s) for pursuing graduate study in nonprofit management. The essay should demonstrate graduate-level writing competency and should be written by the applicant and should be 750-1000 words.

All applicants must have two letters of recommendation submitted on their behalf. At least one letter from a professor from the college/university the applicant attended is preferred. The recommender must address the applicant's ability to succeed at graduate-level academic work in nonprofit management. (Personal recommendations are not accepted.) 

Applicants who do not meet the 3.25 GPA requirement must submit Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores that are no more than five years old.  Applicants whose native language is not English must complete the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and earn a score of at least 550.

Admission is competitive. Applicants meeting the minimum university and/or program application requirements are not guaranteed admission to the program. All requested material must be submitted by the established due date (February 15 for summer admission, May 15 for fall admission and October 15 for spring admission). Materials received after the established deadline will not be considered; therefore, make sure that all application materials are in order before applying to the MNM program.
