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, in order to submit the new application you must re-enter the names and information of your recommenders and upload your statement of purpose. If you no longer have your statement of purpose, you need to type and save the following "Please refer to my previous statement of purpose" in a new word document and upload that instead. You do not need to re-submit any of your supporting documents (official transcripts, letters of recommendation, GRE scores). No additional application fee will be necessary if; you are currently attending as a non-matriculated student at Hunter College or you were accepted and you are reapplying for the following processing period. In this case please choose "Pay by check" option at the end, but you need not send another check.
