Application Deadline for Admission, Fall 2017 is December 15, 2016.

U.S. Citizens or Permanent U.S. Residents

Your application to the MIP department will not be considered complete until all the documents have been uploaded to the application. Only those applications completed by the deadline date will be considered for admission.

Students are accepted for fall semester only.

Submit the Following:

  1. The online application. All of your application materials will be uploaded to the online application. You do not need to wait until all materials are received to submit the online application. In fact it is recommended to submit the application as early on as possible, as this helps Admissions process and upload transcripts and other materials.

  2. Personal statement.

  3. Resume or Curriculum Vitae.

  4. Three letters of recommendation (your references will upload their letters directly to the online application).

  5. GRE scores: GRE scores should be reported directly to CSU by Educational Testing Service (ETS). The institution code for CSU is 4075; no department code is needed. No subject tests are required. It takes at least 3-4 weeks for GRE scores to be delivered by ETS, please keep this in mind when ordering scores.

  6. Official transcripts from each university and/or college (including community colleges) you have attended or received credits from, including credits earned during high school or study abroad. Transcripts from Colorado State University are not required. Official electronic transcripts are accepted, use as the email address when requesting electronic transcripts. 

For any documents that cannot be uploaded, submit paper copies directly to the Office of Admissions at this address:
