Prospective Graduate Students

Notice regarding graduate admissions and COVID-19 (Fall 2020):

The University of Utah Graduate School recognizes that COVID-19 has created substantial challenges for those applying for admission to graduate school.  The Graduate School and the Directors of individual graduate programs recognize these issues and are taking steps to actively support the individual circumstances of each applicant. We have advised admissions committees for graduate programs to keep the disruptions of COVID-19 in mind and develop new flexible, holistic ways to evaluate your preparation for graduate studies at the U. Prospective students should contact individual graduate programs to learn of specific plans for accepting students and/or updates to program admissions criteria. We encourage you to apply to our graduate programs, where you will find supportive and stimulating environments!
