Review & Notification

Applications are initially evaluated by the Graduate Admissions Office.  Ordinarily, only applications of those who have fulfilled the minimum requirements are referred to the department.  Faculty admissions committees then evaluate and select the most qualified candidates.  The number of qualified applicants far exceeds the number of applicants who can be admitted. 

Because departmental committees base recommendations for admission upon careful comparison of applications, it may be some time before final decisions are made.  As a result there cannot  be a guarantee that applicants will receive a response, favorable or unfavorable, on or before any specific date. 

Only written notice from the Director of Graduate Admissions  (or the Dean of the Silberman School of Social Work if your are applying to the Silberman School of Social Work) constitutes approval of admission.

Hunter College does not grant deferrals of admission; you must reapply.

You need to complete and submit a new graduate degree application online in order to reapply to a graduate program at Hunter College. If you have previously applied online you will need to create a new account using a NEW USERNAME AND PASSWORD.In order to successfully submit a new application YOU MUST:

  • Upload your statement of purpose
  • Scan and upload copies of the unofficial transcripts from ALL post-secondary institutions you have attended (regardless of how many credits obtained or whether or not you were awarded a degree from the institution.)
  • You must re-enter the name and contact information of your recommenders. The recommenders WILL need to re-submit their letter electronically via the online application system.
  • NO ADDITIONAL APPLICATION FEE will be necessary IF; you currently attending as a graduate non-matriculated student at Hunter College; you were accepted and you are reapplying to the same graduate degree program for the following processing period OR your application was found incomplete (provided that you have paid the application processing fee for the previous application) AND reapplying to the same graduate degree program for the following processing period. In this case please select the "PAY BY CHECK" option at the end, but do not send another check.
