Assessment of Applications

The assessment of applications for master’s programs is based on the ALES score, the undergraduate cumulative grade point average, and the written examination and interview conducted by the Department. The breakdown of percentages will be as follows: 50% for the ALES score, 20 % for the undergraduate cumulative grade point average, and 30% for the written examination and interview. Applicants who obtain a minimum score of 55 will be ranked in an order by the decision of the Graduate School Administrative Board upon the recommendation of the Department Chairperson. Interview consists of an oral evaluation, taking into consideration the letter of recommendation and the letter of intent submitted by the applicant.

The Graduate School Administrative Board sets up an examining committee with a minimum of three members from among the faculty members recommended by the Department Chairperson in order to assess the applications for graduate programs and to interview the candidates.
