Your academic advisor will review your undergraduate transcript(s) to determine if you have satisfied the pre-enrollment requirements and if any MPA classes can be waived or substituted.
Students who are beginning the MPA program in the fall are strongly encouraged to schedule their academic advising appointment before July 21, 2021 in order to take advantage of the early course registration period. Later appointment dates are also available, if necessary. Initial academic advising appointments will begin on June 7, 2021.
Students who are required to start in the summer should schedule an academic advising appointment before July 9, 2021.
